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


We are talking about Severe Disability Premium, not a typo for Single Person Discount?

If the former, then your benefits people are correct – one of the conditions of entitlement to SDP is that the person must live alone (or can be treated as living alone – some people in the household could be disregarded). Since the claimant no longer lives alone, she does lose the SDP.
