..this time a fight was not needed. When my husband had major surgery recently, we had a call out of the blue from our county's benefits unit, auto referral from the hospital. They supported us to apply for a change of circ's for his DLA lower rate care and we have just received the welcome news that he has secured Higher rate. Just to encourage all those older folk on DLA but not the max to keep an eye on sadly deteriorating health and give it a try. I had known it might be possible but been too frightened to 'rock the boat', as well as too exhausted from daughter's PIP fights. Happy Christmas to all B&W team and forum readers whatever your struggles. Denby
