Just an update today I received the dreaded brown envelope but I'm glad to say it was good news I have been awarded ER daily living and ER mobility for 4years its been really stressful since February but this time the assessor at my ftf actually told the truth in his report about my mental and physical disabilities I'd like to thank benefits and work for this wonderful site and especially GORDON for all the help and advice he has given me without this I would have given up a long time ago so Gordon thank you

Could I ask for your advice please before contacting DWP I recently received an award for pip ER for both parts (as you know) I am also in receipt of ESA support group since 2012 income related and also receive SDP because I live on my own and nobody claims carers allowance for me my question is I'm really struggling with my mobility and daily living and my mental health and finding it really difficult to cope so its been decided that my x husband moves back into my home not to be together but to help me and not for me to be on my own how would this affect my benefits if this was to happen thanks in advance your advice would be appreciated

There are a number of issues with this so I am going to recommend that you get face to face advice before you do anything, do an internet search for "welfare advice" with your postcode, town or county.

Whilst the DWP may treat you as separate, a DM may decide that you are a couple again, depending on your circumstances this could have a significant impact on your benefits.

Unless your ex is also in receipt of a qualifying benefit their living with you will remove your eligibility for the Severe Disability Premium.
