    DLA, claim for higher rate mobility 17th Apr 08 at 6:51 PM
    My husband has been on the lower rate care DLA for the last 5years. He has had one medical to get this rate. no medical has since been done.

    His condition has greatly worsened. he suffers with a fused lower spine, fibromalgia (nervevouse system disorder) and COPD . He cannot walk without an aid or me being with him., he struggles with everyday tasks, and depends on me for a lot, although he hates it.

    Anyway he has put in for the high rate mobility 3 times in the last 24 months and each time turned down regardless of hopsital and doctors notes stating his condition. This time we have appealed it which they say can take 11 weeks.

    we have told that the case is with another decision maker! and if they think the outcome is right it wont even go to the appeal pannel.

    what if anything can be done if this happens. and has this happened to anyone else?

  • Surprised at a few nasty replies re cilla. The respectful thing when someone dies is say nice or say nowt. Grieving relatives may be reading

  • You can judge your age by what #cilla means to you. For me its not the singing, its blind date and surprise surprise. Sad news #ripcilla
