DLA 1 year 11 months ago #136314

A vary big thank you to all the team and a great site.
I had to reapply for DLA on the 22/04/2015 and was awarded MOBILITY Higher Rate,
CARE Middle Rate, both until 21/04/2017.
I have a f2f Assesment on 30/06/2015 for a change to be moved from WRG to SUPPORT GROUP.
Please can someone tell me if DLA awards matter to any ESA assesments.
thank you

Hi Paul,

Congratulations on both your ESA and DLA awards! Thanks for letting us know and for your kind words about B+W :)

There are only a couple of places where the DLA and ESA descriptors overlap and, even then, they are not identical. Nevertheless a high rate award for mobility, for example, can indicate a level of disability.
