Hi

 

I am in ESA support group and have just been awarded PIP last week.

 

I live alone and no one claims carers allowance for me so I believe I am entitled to SDP.

 

On the Gov website it says you don't need to apply as it will be added automatically.

 

My question is does this actually happen?

It doesn't.

 

You have to apply for it.

 

You have to fill in a short form.

 

And I mean short - it's a few boxes confirming you live alone and that no-one claims carers for you plus, I think, a few other bits.

Thanks.

Will the form be sent to me or do I need to ask for it?

Probably quickest to phone and ask for the form.

 

For reference, you only get severe disability premium with income-based ESA, not contribution-based.

I contacted them today, they said a form IS10 had been sent out last week but being as I had called might as well complete the form now online.

Hopefully I will hear in the next week or so..

They had a habit of losing my forms. Contact them within a week or two and see if they've got it.
