Benefits you currently receive

What you tell us on this page affects which benefits you could be entitled to so please answer each question carefully. There are currently two benefits systems – legacy benefits and Universal Credit – and we need to know if you, or your partner if you have one, already receive any of these benefits to work out your entitlements.

Do you currently receive a Severe Disability Premium in your benefit? Help icon

You may be getting this extra amount in your benefit if you don't have a carer receiving Carer's Allowance for looking after you. Please see the help icon for more detail.

As you currently receive a Severe Disability Premium you are in the small group of people who may still be able to start a new claim for a legacy benefit you’re not already claiming. Select yes for each benefit in this box (use the i to help you choose if you haven't already selected IS, JSA or ESA) and we will work out what you could be entitled to in your results. This is a complicated area so please do seek specialist advice and see our Severe Disability Premium help page for more information.
