Hi t,

As The SDP is paid as an Income Related (IR) ESA top-up, it should not have any adverse effect of your daughter's HB, etc.

In fact being in receipt of IR ESA can passport a claimant to other "benefits" such as HB, Council Tax Support (CTS), free prescriptions, eye tests, and dental care, etc.

You could drop a line to the LA/Council that administers her HB, it would certainly do no harm. However, they may already be aware. :)
