Hi there I really don't have any helpful links or that but what id do is ring every day. I don't know about you but I have experiences where one day ill have a fully experienced advisor on the phone who just takes care of it and then another that passes the buck or says there nothing that can be done. Short of CAB that's all I can suggest and grats there hope you get ti soon.xx

Its took years to get this far now still got to wait my daughter was dianoged with her condition from birth for firsts 3 years got dla then she started school and they then said no. she's so behind in school now that everyones now saying what we've said all along. she struggerling. so now she gone from 7.5 hours of help to 25 hours of help at school. opmathologist dont want to know coz nothing they can do. they make me so angry.

Hi jules16

I am so sorry to read that you are suffering all the stress of this problem at the moment, and I genuinely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to this issue. I have pasted you a link to the GOV.UK sites overview of DLA, so I hope that you find this useful:

It may be an idea to discuss the issue with your local CAB if you do not receive the monies soon? There is also an interesting feature about this topic on the benefits and work website, I have pasted you the link below:

I want to wish you all the best of luck with this.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Email your MP, they are surprisingly helpful, and as it is for a child, they should be willing to gee up the DWP.

I second this, bend their ears until they do something about this. Its intolerable & the shouldn't get away with it.


Hi Sorry to hear the struggle you have had. It is sound advice about the MP as they can be surprisingly helpful and seem to be able to get a response much quicker than us. Good luck with it all. Warm thoughtsx
