Hi, I was on DLA low rate for care only and have asked for my case to be looked at again to see if I could get mobility etc and sent the forms in 5 weeks ago approx,they said if hadnt heard anything in 11 weeks to give them a call,,however I have had two letters apologizing for the delay etc and rang up a few days ago, got a lovely lady who told me they are absolutely inundated,suppose it depends on each cases circumstances they are waiting for several doctors reports etc, welcome to the waiting club :-D

I might also add that if it goes in your favour it is backdated to the date you asked them to look at it again,even if you have to appeal ,,x

I will also add that if it doesnt go withi your favour and they take away or lower an award you will have to pay back moneys from date of the change of circumstances.
