I won

i have been fighting for my DLA payments, as i was getting middle care and high mobility and they took it down to low rate care. On wednesday i went to a tribunal with my children with me, who are my carers and i won its back to how it was and its being back dated to november last year. i'm so happy i will be able to afford things again.

I wish everyone going though the same thing good luck, and take your carers with you, so they can say how you really are.

Hi All

I don't know if it is allowed to mention websites in this forum but I joined benefitsandwork.co.uk/ and it was the best 20 squid I have ever spent. It has repaid itself in bucketfuls.

As a subscribed member you can get guides for DLA, DLA Appeals, 70 questions you’re likely to be asked at your DLA medical.....plus ESA, IB and PIP guides.

The guides are updated regularly as rules change and for a subscribed member the website and forum are stuffed full of useful information and breaking news.

My DLA went from low mobility, low care to high mobility, middle care by filling my forms in using the guides. Its a long process to do it all correctly but bear with it, a bit a day, its so worth the effort.

I dont work for Benefits and Work so my comments are from personal experience only.

Best of luck and gentle hugs to you all

Comfort

we all deserve it, they just don't know the pain we go through. if you have a leg in plaster then they can see that, but pain and fatigue they cannot see. plus some doctors still don't think its as bad as it is. some doctors need to be educated.
