Reply To: Severe Disability Premium & Non deps

I disagree Derrick, the condition isn’t that claimant lives alone, if the claimant is single person, the condition is whether he has a non dependant normally residing with him.

the revised reg 68 states that if non dep moves in to pensioner household, this change will only take effect after 26 weeks.

if the change is not taking effect for 26 weeks, then during the 26 weeks the pensioner will continue to satisfy pag 13(2)(a)(ii) of Schedule 2, therefore claimant still eligible for SDP for HB.
