Christmas present

Postby TORRYTALENT » Fri Dec 07, 2012 5:06 pm

Well never thought this would happen, have been on DLA lowest level for both for just over a year. This was for problems with neuropathy . Asked them to look again at my claim as mt condition was worse now as have fibro too. And the man from the DLA, he said yes. High rate for mobility and middle for care. Got letter today and backdated money into my account today. Can not believe it but what a bonus. It will really help. So just thought I would let you know. Xx

I used to get the £10 with my incapasity benefit but I noticed since going onto ESA there was no mention of it

Hope we get it with dla :fingerscrossed:

It is still paid with ESA, as I just got it a few days ago. Instead of an seperate £10 payment the way they used to pay it, an extra £10 was added to my normal ESA payment on 7th Dec. Well I hope that is what it is.Check your ESA payments to see if they've added it on. .

Many congratulations, this is the outcome I am hoping for at least. Can I ask how long it took DWP to decide on yours?

Have a wonderful Christmas x :hohoho1:
