    Carers allowance versus Carers Premium

    I can't get carers allowance but have been awarded carers premium.
    I know that CA affects SDP for couples (paid at single rate) but does CP affect SDP in the same way ?
    and is there any affect on EDP ?

    Did you make a claim for income based ESA in the end? Are you both getting the Carer's premium?
