Disability Premiums (Income Support)

What are Disability Premiums?

Disability premium is an extra amount automatically added to your Income Support if you qualify for it.

Am I eligible?

To qualify for a disability premium you must get Income Support.

Also, you or your partner must be under pension credit age and either registered blind or getting any of these benefits:

  • Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • Disabled Person’s Tax Credit
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Constant Attendance Allowance
  • War Pensioners Mobility Supplement
  • Severe Disablement Allowance
  • Incapacity Benefit

If you don’t qualify, you may still get the premium if you’ve been unable to work for at least a year.

How do I claim?

You don’t have to claim disability premium, it’s automatically added to your Income Support if you’re eligible.
