DLA stopped

Hello this is my first time on here. I am looking for help. I have been a fibro sufferer for approx 5 years i also suffer with depression, anxiety, osteo arthritus, chronic spondilytus in my neck and shoulders, psorisis, bursitus. I have been claiming DLA for 5 years and have a car on mobility. My claim ends in April and they are renewing it. I am extremely worried and anxious as i dont know what to do. Ps i also suffer with insomnia. X

  • I am so sorry i meant to say that they are NOT renewing my claim.

  • Hi tivolo...

    Here is some info on benefits, including sources of specialist support:

    fibroaction.org/Pages/Benef...

    DLA is being replaced by a new benefit - PIP - and it may be that you will now have to apply for this. Here is some info on PIP:

    If you email info@fibroaction.org, then our Administrator Emma can send you out guides from Benefits& Work (for free). FibroAction are a professional member of this organisation to enable us to do this, as we feel that these guides are some of the best around.

  • I'm just starting the process of an appeal, got an appointment at the CAB next week to help me get my recomendations together, I'm dreading it, but the way this government is treating us, making us feel like scroungers when we are in genuine pain every day all day, yet you get some that have nothing wrong with them and claim and get everything, it really makes my blood boil.

  • i totally agree with you, i have been on DLA for the past 5 years, for the last 3 i have had a car on the mobility scheme... last year was a bad year for me health wise, i tried to get my lower rate of care increased to the middle rate, i went to appeal & to the tribunal & lost, they told me that it was in my best interest to stay has i was otherwise i might loose everything. Now i have come to re-new they have said no to everything, so now i loose my lower rate of care and the car that i have become so dependent on this last 3 years. i dont understand why they have stopped everything my claim for was completed correctly, but to me it seems as if they havnt even looked at it, that there minds were made up last year after my appeal. i feel discriminated against, angry, upset & very stressed, i feel so depressed, and i am in more chronic pain than i ever had, i take tramadol & they dont even take the edge of pain off..
