    Had a strange request from district chair regarding one of my cases. Claimant is full-time student with epliepsy and wants to claim HB for Hall of Residence. She does not get IS/IB/DLA and so does not have Disability Premium but does get disabled students allowance.

    Claim was turned down and she appealed. District chair asked us to write to the DWP and ask whether there’s a procedure for referring people to them to decide whether or not they are entitled to Disability Premium.

    Does anybody know whether they do have a procedure and what it is?



    In case you didn’t know, you’re getting some responses to this in “the other place” (Rightsnet!)


    Thanks. Thought I’d hedge my bets!
