Reply To: Non-Deps and loss of SDP to Pensioner in receipt of AA

The whole point of SDP and the policy intention was to give some extra benefit to those people who have personal care needs and have no-one else to help them. So the thinking is that if a carer is paid to come and help you make the bed or do the ironing or prepare a meal etc or if you have an able bodied adult (non dep or partner) living with you, then you don’t get SDP.
