Hi all any help would be appreciated? I have just had my new pack for DLA as I was turned down at my last appeal! Anyway now they put a form in with your pack that says if you answer all these questions then you will know if you are eligible for a claim! All the questions ask are you british and all that, then about your care en mobility en all that, at every question it will tell you after you have ticked yes or no what number question to go to then. Then at the end at question 12 if you tick NO there then it tells you `You are not likely to qualify for DLA. But if you want to make a claim, please fill in the claim form` Wow this is a new one they have slipped in! It says - Do any of the following apply to you 1. You need help with dialysis at home or in a minimum care unit at least twice a week where you do not receive help from hospital staff? 2. You are 100% blind and 80% deaf and you need someone with you when you are outdoors. 3. You are certified as severely sight impaired or blind. 4. You have had both legs amputated at or above the ankle, or you were born without legs or feet. 5. You are severely mentally impaired with severe behavioural problems and need help with personal care day and night. So if this is the case then most of us wont be able to get DLA with this criteria that they are asking for!
