TOPIC: Successfully awarded High rate DLA for my M.E

Successfully awarded High rate DLA for my M.E 5 years 3 days ago #85469

I just wanted to share the good news I received a couple of weeks ago, my new claim for DLA had been awarded as high rate care and high rate mobility for my severe ME. This is better than I could possibly expect, and was due to a mixture of your wonderful advice for filling in the form, and an understanding ATOS Doctor (didn't know they existed).

Having already got me through two ESA appeals successfully, I just want to once again say thank you very much.

That is good news! Thanks for letting us know, I'm sure that many members will be relieved to hear that (some) ATOS assessors are human. Thanks also for your kind words about this site :)
