Default D.L.A. Payment dates are changeing ?

Hi all just a heads up
had a letter informing me the from march 2009 my DLA PAYMENTS will change and it may effect others too

i currently get paid DLA in with my incapacity benefit weekly and all ways have done
from the job centre plus

from March 2009 this will stop and i will get paid from the pension,disability and carers service but this will be paid 4 weeks in arrears. so i will be short in my weekly income for four weeks until the 4 weeks in arrears is reached then i will get my DLA.
this is going to upset my routine and effect my bills and how i pay them.just not what i needed i pay lots of my bills weekly and the DLA paid weekly helped in how i paid those bills etc and wont help as i use pre-payment meters and the 4 weeks wait for my DLA is going to hurt

there is a option to ring a 0845 number for advice but this is going to effect me bad I feel for the 4 weeks im waiting for my DLA.
Thanks

p.s with this happening its going to effect my direct debts too
ive got to try and find the money to cover them.grrrrr

phone them up, and ask them to put it back to weekly payments, due to the problems you have.

we had them try and do this before with the tax credit, and their said their would not put it to 4 weeks, due to the problems we would have.

so, just call them and ask.

My DLA was originally paid fortnightly in with my incapacity benefit. I received a letter a month or so ago saying they were changing my DLA to monthly and it would be paid seperately to IB.
I rang them and said I couldn't budget on it being paid monthly as I have bills going out at various stages in the month and they changed it to weekly.

Give them a ring, they will change it for you.
