Disability Living Allowance when is first payment?

Postby Maxisback » Mon Dec 03, 2012 2:34 pm

Hi I've just been awarded the higher rate for mobility (06/12/12) and care (07/12/12), does anyone know when I'd likely start receiving payment? ie advance or arrears. Would I need to wait for 4-weeks?

If anyone has any idea I'd appreciate it!

I think you are sent precise dates and ammounts by letter but I would have thought they would inform you when to expect it into your bank account.

Sometimes you might get the letter after your first payment !!! It is usually a few weeks after its awarded so that you can be slotted into a payment schedule but you should get it before Xmas and it will be from the award date in your case 6/12/12. unless having got the HMR you have opted for a motibility car , then it might take a bit longer to organise.

Good luck
