    D.L.A. Payment dates are changeing ? 7th Jan 09 at 2:45 PM
    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.

    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
