Good news re DLA

Hello everybody,

I thought it would be nice to share my good news. I HAVE WAITED 16 months for an appeal tribunal for DLA after being turned down twice,I attended last friday with my partner and was given high rate mobility and low rate care. My condition has deterioated in 16 months but i was told they would not look at that, I think they did and would like to say to anybody trying to get DLA dont give up.

Really pleased for you, why did it take so long?

I ask as I had heard that people always get turned down to start with.

I sent my form off at the beginning of October and got a phone call last week to check how many times a night I go to the loo. She told me it would get finalised that day and I should hear shortly. I checked my bank account this morning and there was a substantial payment from DLA and when the post came the letter said I’d been awarded higher rate mobility and middle rate care both for an indefinite period. I had sent medical letters with my form and had joined benefits and work for help to complete the form.

The form was a pain to complete but the process has been fortunately relatively straight forward for me. It seems so unfair that my claim went through easily but that some people who obviously are also entitled to it have such difficulty getting what they deserve.

I suppose what I’m saying is that I’m glad you’ve finally got what you deserve and to others that are thinking of applying sometimes it does go smoothly!!!

Take Care,
