Severe Disability Premium - Severe Disability Premium and Universal Credit

A Severe Disability Premium is an extra amount that is included in some means-tested benefits to help with the cost of disability.

Severe Disability Premium and Universal Credit

The Severe Disability Premium does not exist in Universal Credit. At the moment, people who are entitled to Severe Disability Premium cannot claim Universal Credit. If you are entitled to a Severe Disability Premium, you can still make new claims for the benefits Universal Credit replaces.

If you were entitled to a Severe Disability Premium and claimed Universal Credit before 16 January 2019, you will be entitled to compensation at some point in the future.

If you were entitled to a Severe Disability Premium and claimed Universal Credit after 16 January 2019 you can go back onto the benefits Universal Credit replaces. This can be complicated, and you should find an adviser.
