I applied for DLA on 29th May, just before the cut off date. We’ve just got back from holiday and I had a letter to say I’ve been awarded higher rate for mobility and middle rate for care. I really didn’t expect to be successful so I’m a very happy bunny. My gp, bless her, must have written a brilliant report.
Although I’m waiting for my housing association to fit a walk in shower so if and when it happens I’ll have to let DWP know because some of my care issues are using the over bath shower. Although the HA are refusing to pay at the moment as they priced the work at £3900 and they said they can only go up to £3500. Funny how they managed to price it just over the limit, isn’t it??
Anyway, the award letter said it’s indefinite although I guess the changes to PIP might change that.
