No cost of living rise to DLA this year.

I have just received a letter from the DWP about the new rates for 2016…no change from 2015. Was inflation zero in 2015?

Got mine too…I get motability off first, so not checked it yet. Thought it was my PIP claim letter. Breathe a bit longer.


Rises to disability benefits are linked to the Consumer Price Index for the previous September. Which decreased last September, so there are no rises to disability benefits this year.


We were lucky DLA wasn’t decreased then!

Oh right! Nice!
