Document What is a premium?

A premium is an amount that is added to your weekly expenses in recognition of the fact that you may have a higher amount of weekly expenses than is accounted for in the personal allowance; you can be awarded more than one premium as part of your assessment.

Each premium has its own qualifying conditions and rates, depending on whether you're applying as an individual or as a couple. Multiple premiums can be awarded as part of a single assessment.

You don't need to apply for these premiums, they're automatically included in your assessment if you meet the qualifying conditions.
