Challenging Department for Work and Pensions on Severe Disability Premium (SDP)
In January 2021, new changes for the Severe Disability Premium (SDP) came into force with new rules for claimants.
Our Welfare Benefits and Money Advice Team tackled a complex case for a customer through advocacy and support.
Our Team were able to challenge Department for Work and Pensions decision to refuse SDP premium. This resulted in a backdated award of £2,800 which was used to get 4 weeks ahead with rent and sustain the tenancy for many years to come.
