SDP is £52.85/wk
CA is £53.10/wk

In order to get CA, your daughter must be over 16, not in full-time education and not earning more than £95/wk.

You cannot get SDP if your daughter is over 18, not disabled, and living with you.

I'm afraid I can't remember the criteria for the carer premium on IS or the interplay between that and CA. Hopefully someone else here is much more genned up than I am.
