TOPIC: Help with the new DLA 580 renewal form

Help with the new DLA 580 renewal form 9 years 6 months ago #18803

Hi,
I have just recived the DLA 580 4 page renewal form, and I`m dreading filling It In and sending It.
I`m on a 3 year renewal cycle, Its only been 2 years since I last had any dealings with them.
To cut a long story short....
I had been on LRC Indefinitely since the early 1990`s, In 2007 I asked for my claim to be looked at again, and after a year, yes !! a year, of appeals, lost forms, I finally got my claim changed to HRC and HRM, with the help of a Welfare Rights Advisor.
I knew this day was coming, but after all the stress I went through last time I want to make sure this renewal wont end up the same way.
I got a e mail when this form came out giving tips on how to go about filling It In, but I cant seem to find the link on the site.
I have read on the forum people have sent the form In stating no change, and had problems.
I still have all the Information I sent them last time, photographs, medical reports etc, as my conditions have not changed, I was just going to resend all of that Information with the current date, a copy of my current perscription stapled to this 580 form.
Has anyone got any advice to help ?.

Cheers

Hi I would sujest that you must be carefull
because from what i have noticed when people say no change they seem to think
that your condition is stable. I would send
in medication info and evidence as much as
you can obtain. As we get older the conditions we have tend to worsen.I would
ask your gp to write a letter that your
illness effects you and has got no better
and will not improve if you have a good gp
you will find that they will help.Dont get
upset use there own system against them.
good luck i will watching to see how you
go on. I used the web site the info will
steer you through.

Thanks for all the help, as I said I have all the medical stuff from the previous claim, along with loads of stuff pre typed out, as I cant hold a pen or write I got someone to type It all out for me.

Is there anywhere I can download the full DLA claim form, so I can send It along with this, and staple all the pages I have ?

Cheers
