Reply To: Size Criteria – Single Adult with Severe Disability Premium


As I understand it, both Young Individuals and those over 25 will be entitled to the one room self – contained rate if they are entitled to a severe disability premium, and the shared accommodation rate would never apply.The finalised Reg 13D (2)(a)(ii) differs from the draft form of the regulation in that it mentions the SDP.

Regulation 13D (2)(a) does not apply to young individuals or those over 25 when they (or their partners) meet the conditions for the SDP.
