    Hi Debbie,

    If you claim a disability benefit as well like DLA/PIP then you would both be able to claim SDP. If you don't claim a disability then your husband wouldn't be able to claim SDP instead of you claiming CA. Part of the criteria for SDP is that no adults live with you, that would include a partner/husband/wife.

      Was it the daily living part? It would need to be this part to start with. Then i'm not sure if you could claim this now to be back dated. Was there any reason you didn't claim it then?

      You would also needed to have been claiming an Income Related benefit along side the PIP. Sorry just remembered that. These premiums are so complex x
