Benefits and Work has now obtained a copy of the July edition (issue 77) of the Decision Makers Exchange bulletin sent out to all DLA decision makers. Issues covered include:

  • What award to make - indefinite or limited - where the claimant's needs arising from one condition are expected to reduce but other needs arising are expected to last indefinitely.
  • The importance of considering alternative solutions to attention.
  • An awarding decision can be superseded for the reason of anticipated change of circumstances.
  • The importance of revising any later decision following a tribunal decision favourable to the claimant.

Benefits and Work members can download copies of Decision Makers Exchange.
