    dla rates 18th Oct 08 at 8:18 PM
    my mum has been getting dla for years .She was intitled to a motorabilty car .Last year she gave up the car due to my dad dying (he was the driver )
    So her dla is now calulated at around £130 per month .But I think to get motability she would have been on a higher rate DLA .
    does this sound right .
    She really has no idea what she was getting before as dad took care off all that.I do know she had to give up some off her dla to receive the car

    our right you have to get high rate mobility to be entitled to car, it is currently about 46 a week. She should really ring the DLA and ask about it.

    Hi, Martin’s asked me to post this in these circumstances: I’ve asked Board Guides to move threads if they’ll receive a better response elsewhere (please see this rule) so this post/thread has been moved to another board, where it should get more replies.
