Hey kerry-anne

About 4 years ago I was just receiving the care component at the lower rate, when I left work I decided to reapply and they decided that I wasnt entitled to anything at all! I had been receiving the care component since 1992.

So yes they could but I appealed and won in the end. But I now only receive higher rate mobility no care.


Thankyou claire for your reply I like i said before get higher rate mobility and because of my asthma arthritis ect to long to list i get taxis everywhere so if i lost that my life would be just one big prison in my mind and my flat as i use my dla to visit friends and family as would not be able to walk there even a bus only drops me off so far so still struggle im just praying things turn out ok take care
