TOPIC: WooHoo I won

WooHoo I won 4 years 11 months ago #83096

At last! Last month i finally had my ESA appeal after waiting since 9th May 2011 and have gone from zero points to 18 points. I still don't know what group i'm in as the DWP are dragging their heals and haven't sorted out the new rate and the back pay...

Yesterday i had my DLA after waiting since 3rd March 2011 and won that too. I've been awarded the low rate for mobility and the middle rate for care, as my illness is beginning to improve it has only been awarded until 3rd september 2012 but i'm not worried about that. If in september i'm still having problems i'll just re apply or fill in the re newal form if one is sent?

I'm now waiting for my back pay for both ESA & DLA and thats going to be 'loadsa money' lol

I would just like to say a huge thank you to the B&W as if it wasn't for their wonderful advice i double very much i would have won...THANK YOU SO MUCH xxxx

Hi M,

Glad to hear of your success :)

Thanks for returning to let us know, it gives encouragement to other members in a similar position to you.

Don't spend all your arrears at once ;)

Best wishes.

Jim
