Useful disability information from the Gov.uk website
« on: October 26, 2012, 08:05:09 PM »
This link covers several aspects  of disabled people's rights and entitlements, each with its own link for further detail:

https://www.gov.uk/browse/disabilities/disabled-people

I'll leave it stickied for a while...

The list on that page is excellent, it has allsorts of things I would not readily think of eg needs assessment and help with gardening, and not just benefits like DLA and ESA etc

 >thumbsup< good that it is stickied.

It was obviously proving too useful as an A - Z list  >doh<

Seems to have been replaced by another page listing five categories of interest, each with their own separate link:

Anyone know about Enhanced Disability Pemium?   Like most of us, I could use a little extra money - I've tried for Pension Credit but I'm not entitled.

You or your partner would need to be in the ESA Support group or DLA Highest Rate for Care and also over 60.

The benefit is means tested and if you click this link there is a benefits calculator on the top right.

Enhanced Disability Premium
You qualify for an Enhanced Disability Premium if you and your partner are under 60 and one of you receives Disability Living Allowance higher rate care component/ Personal Independence Payment Daily Living component enhanced rate. You also qualify for an enhanced disability premium if you claim main-phase Employment and Support Allowance and receive the support component (even if you are not claiming Disability Living Allowance higher rate care component).
