    There are other factors

    You must be SINGLE (not claiming as a couple)

    No one is claiming carers allowance for you

    And in receipt of PIP. DAILY LIVING or DLA care middle of high component

    Also there are numerous threads on here all with the same name!

    Any one of those contain the relavent information

    Probably best to go have a read at them as i've maybe forgotten something

    Think it would depend on how severe your disability is,,, surely

    if you think you need severe disability from PIP then you

    should be in the support group for ESA not wrag,, but the ratings

    are different

      Hi Jayne

      In a way you are right. To get SDP you need to be getting either standard/enhanced daily care PIP. You also need to be living alone with no-one in receipt of carer allowance for you. It is also affected by savings and income (even if you are in the Support Group)

      If no-one is in receipt of carer allowance for looking after you and you don't have any other income or savings over £6000 then pick up the phone and make a claim.cheesygrin
