TOPIC: DLA renewal success

DLA renewal success 6 years 2 months ago #111428

Many thanks to B & W for the useful advice here which helped me to win higher mobility from previous lower rate for ME/CFS. Care rate unchanged from lower, both indefinitely. I did not expect to get the higher rate of mobility but I did think I would get middle care as I have trouble with my hands with pain and weakness and therefore with things like bathing..

I don't know whether I should appeal or not?

I got a report from an osteopath which helped I think though it cost me £80.

Congratulations on the award.

Only you can decide whether to appeal or not, but be aware that by challenging the Decision you are opening up the whole award to revision, including the possibility that it can be removed..
