  • Congratulations great news you did well

  • Congratulations jo,it just goes to show persistance pays.xx

  • Fantastic x

  • That's brilliant, I only get low rate care no mobility so well done. Do you have someone living with you? If so as you are on middle rate care they should be able to get carers allowance. I do for my son and at £58 a week it is nice.

  • no I live on my own, but lucky I have one of my daughter ,always come up to help me, as having to sale my house ,and now renting one was I could be closer to get the help I need,

  • Fab news! I get high rate mobility and lower rate care from last july but they have only given it to me for a year so will have to renew again this year as they said the MTX should improve my RA,only its not and infact i'm getting more flare ups than before.x

  • yes they only give it to me for a year as well , must be a new thing,

  • It's a joke isn't it. I must confess, I was one of those that said "what's the point in contesting" (paperwork freaks me out since my hubby died - after filling in all those required documents). 'They' decided I only needed £10 a week as I only needed to cook one meal a day, apparently I don't need to feed my son! who's still in primary school. It's madness. Never mind the heating etc.

    So well done to you for fighting the fight. :o)

  • I didn't understand why only a year as well x

  • Glad you persevered and succeeded! It all adds to the stress we don't need, doesn't it. What ATOS and DWP put me through last summer was awful. I too appealed and they backed down. I shouldn't have even had to do that. I had an awful flare with all the aggro surrounding it. What made it worse the Atos assessor hadn't a scooby doo about RA.

  • Well done you!

    Fantastic news and well done on persevering throughout.
