      One of the Criteria for Severe Disability Premium is Daily living PIP the Mobility part isn't one of the Criteria, just so you know smile

    Is there a reason you claim Income Support? Claiming Severe Disability Premium would depend if you recieve the Daily living part of PIP. Also no one must claim Carers Allowance for you.

      I know SDP is payable when claiming Income related ESA but i'm unsure if it's available with Income Support. You'll need to ring Income Support and find out. Sorry i can't be of anymore help on this.
