TOPIC: Pip award and premiums

Pip award and premiums 1 year 2 months ago #168708

Hi

I've finally had good news, I've been awarded pip standard living rate after my tribunal. Thanks to words of support and guidance mostly from this site.

Can anyone tell me if I'm no longer in the esa wrag, also if I'm entitled to any premiums now and how to go about getting them.

Keep up the fight you lot

First of all you will only be eligible for the payment of a Premium if this is to happen you need to be receiving or are entitled to receive Income Related ESA. ESA(IR) is dependant on your household income, your savings and assets, and any hours that your partner works. See

Asset rule for ESA(IR)

24 hour work rule for ESA(IR)

If you are eligible for ESA(IR) then based on your post then the only Premium you might be entitled to would be the Severe Disability Premium, to receive this you need to be living alone and no one must be receiving CA against your PIP award.

To receive the Premium you need to complete an ESA3 if you are not receiving ESA(IR) and an IS10 form to confirm that you meet the criteria for the SD Premium. You can get these by contacting the DWP office that deals with your ESA claim.

Thanks Gordon

Yes I'm on income ESA, I do live with my family but my partner is a full time student at university.

I seem to be in a grey area, and a bit confused. My partner can't claim careers because of this and I can't claim severe disability premium because we live together.

Is my thinking right, seems a bit unfair to me

On the assumption that your partner lives with you during term time, then I am afraid that this is correct.
