Severe Disability Premium - How much Severe Disability Premium will I get?

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

How much Severe Disability Premium will I get?

There are two rates of Severe Disability Premium:

Single person rate    £69.40 per week
Couple rate             £138.80 per week

If you and your partner both get a qualifying benefit and someone gets Carer's Allowance or Carer’s Element of Universal Credit for looking after you (or your partner), your Severe Disability Premium will be paid at the single rate.

If you are getting Severe Disability Premium, it will show on your award letter as ‘extra money because you are severely disabled’.
