Quickest DLA award in history of the world!

Yes folk, your eyes are not deceiving you. I have already got the DLA award letter.

I sent it in exactly a month ago, on 11th June.

Got high mobility and middle care. Same as before and I’m happy with it. It’s fair.

BUT this time I get the ‘indefinite’ time period… which would be great if PIP wasn’t waiting to pop through my letterbox.

Well it’s something else I don’t need to worry about…

Beautiful day in London. Sun is shining, sky is blue…

Wishing you all a lovely weekend,

Well done Pat, one less thing to think about.

Hey, I just had a thought…Dickie was the first good news, DLA was the second, and they say it comes in 3’s…are you doing the lottery tonight?

Nice here today, sun with a lovely cooling breeze.

Well done Pat, you obviously write a good application. Does not getting shot in Wood Green count as one of the three?

Whammel as I so rarely leave the comfort of my flat my chances of being shot are seriously diminished…

(You’ve obviously seen the news!).

Hope you’re doing well,

You was the first person I thought of when I heard the news last night and slightly concerned about the risk of crossfire. Either that, or it’s an angry IDS looking for retribution following your successful DLA application. Be careful out there.

great news, Pat,wouldnt you think they would have just sent you the pip forms instead of having to fill the DLA forms only for you to have to apply for the pip too… but that would be asking too much of the dhss …wouldnt it now…lol

I would have thought they could have just extended DLA until I get PIP forms.

That of course would have been far too sensible.

Thanks for your concern Whammel.

That would have been sensible to me too. The fact that it went through so quickly probably means they just skimmed through it and passed it, knowing it’ll be properly assessed soon. Waste of your time and unnecessary stress.

Yes Cath that occurred to me as well. Saw I had medical evidence, saw what I am currently getting, and passed it.

All that bloody work!

But if I hadn’t of done it properly I would have got the most picky DWP worker and been turned down.

Such is life!

Thanks everyone,

I am soaking up the vibes, means a lot. I am dreading the letter and I will probably have to go through the assessment again.

Good luck Mags, it always winds me up that we really struggle to get our benefits when loads of people who aren’t ill get it with no problem because they know how to play the system. Sometimes honesty doesn’t pay unfortunately. Let’s hope all goes smoothly for you.
