Woke up to a nice letter from the DWP this morning

Hi all, for those of you who have replied to my comments/questions on this forum, I just want to let you all know that after having been awarded low care component on the 5th march 2014, I appealed through a 'supersession' and won. yes WON. Was awarded high rate mobility and middle rate care, I just want to thank everybody involved on this site and as the saying goes "NEVER GIVE UP", you will succeed in the end. Good luck to everybody, i will be in the background of this forum now, once again a massive thank you from BIGGER SMILEY DAVE

  • congratulations. can you please tell me what a supersession is please ?

  • Hi, when I had my tribunal in March for dla, I won but was only awarded low care component , I was told I could appeal again through a super session which is just filling out another dla form but with your up to date illness. At my docs we have a benefits adviser who filled this form in, they received it 17th April and I was awarded high rate mobility and middle care . Hope this explains it in brief.

  • thanks for that was that after a reconsideration and before you went to appeal please ?

  • congrats pleased to hear you can now shout from the rooftops i won a truly great feeling hugs to you and your wife

  • Well done that will be a relief to you, as you say don't give up and persevere xx
