hi fellow fibromites, wonder if anyone can advise me, if you are in hospital for 14 days do you have to notify the dla,I have the higher rate mobility and I have a car on that ( I can't drive ) my partner does
and I get low rate mobility ( which is weird as I notified them a year ago that I can't dress myself but they said no I still was only going to get lower rate!)
I was in hosp recently meant to be for 4 days but the surge ry went wrong (long story)!
now whilst reading through my latest dla literature explaining pip is on the way etc and I will eventually get the call up, I read all the paperwork and it says " if you go into hospital you should notify the dla ,the day you go in and the day you come out, however I went on the government help pages about dla and hospital ,it says " if you go into or come out of hospital you must tell the disability and carers service straight away" but strangely enough further up the page it says " both the care and mobility parts of dla will usually stop after you have been in hosp for 28 days"
so bit confused ,my fella says to forget about it but I do not want to be dishonest so it comes back to literally bite me on the bum!!
so to tell or not to tell that is the question!! advise please, as I don't know whether I should write and tell them or whether I shouldn't!!
