I received my DLA letter today…and I’ve been turned down on mobility and care. It says that ‘although my walking is limited, you are not unable or virtually unable to walk…This means you are not entitled to higher rate mobility.’ It also says ‘although you prefer someone with you, you don’t need them to guide or supervise you when walking outside in places you don’t know well.’
It also says that I have difficulty but I don’t need help to prepare and cook a meal…and goes on and on about how I don’t need help for this and don’t need help for that.
This is totally wrong and I want to appeal…it’s just like they have not even read my application form.
I was just wondering if anyone has appealed and won…was it a hard slog and how on earth do I go about it?,
Any help would be appreciated.
