When I gave up work in august last year due to the fibromyalgia and polyarthralgia I applied for DLA. While waiting to hear I was put onto ESA, I got the medical assessment done for that and my money went up last week. I got a letter this morning telling me I am getting the low rate care component of dla but not entitled to anything for the other component, thing is its been 5/6 months since applying for dla and things for me are far worse than they were back in august. Should I tell them this or just leave things as they are incase I'm pushing my luck. I know how hard it is to get dla and was gobsmacked this morning to find out I am getting something. Could anyone also tell me what getting dla entitles you to and does getting only for one component and not the two make a difference.
Take care all
