Hi all, woke up this morning feeling stiff as a board and in huge amounts of pain so my plans for my day off have been scupperd. Was sitting here feeling sorry for my self when the post came and in in was a letter saying I've been granted my Bluebadge!! Yeah! I got my diability tax credits awarded last month so now only my DLA to go. Ok, so Im not holding my breathe on that one but hey,as the song goes, 2 out of 3 aint bad. Going to have another cuppa and see if I can salvadge a little of what I had planned and try to stay positive. Its amazing how a small success can lift you up. Wishing you all a little success :) xx

  • Hi jazher, if you work 16 hours a week and have had to have a considerable amout of time off, resulting in you being on SSP or are already getting DLA. you can apply for the disability element with your tax credits. All I had to do was send in copies of a couple of pay slips as proof of SSP. The easiest way to go about it is to ring the taxcredits help line and tell them you want to apply, they wiil do it for you and write to you for whatever proof they need. Hope you can get it. x

  • Thankyou for replying twiglet.

    i wont get it as i gave up work 2 years ago and my partner is just supporting me so wont be able to get any benefits along them lines.

    I have tried dla when i just had fibro and got turned down, but now i have fibro, cfs/me and hypermobility so i am gonna try again.

  • Well done!! Always nice to hear good news. Hope it will be good news with the DLA too.

  • Well done. A little bit of something good can make a huge difference and give you the lift you need to make the effort you didn't think you could make.

    P s. I have applied twice for a blue badge, prompted by a lady at DSS but been refused both times, so you are lucky, well done.

  • Hi there,

    If you go the goverment site it will direct you as to how to apply in your area as its your county council that awards it so slightly different for different areas. Hope that helps :)
