I have just been awarded LRM. I'm in shock.only applied 7 weeks ago and was awarded it after they wrote to my doctor.

I'll be appealing the care element.

I just need to know if I need to inform anyone like income support or housing benefit etc.

Congratulations on your award , I thik they all seem to talk to each other and from my experience DLA seems to be not included when you are awarded other benefits

I haven't received any paperwork yet, so I don't know the full details of the award.

I had a benefits adviser come to my home and help me fill in the forms. The same lady filled in my mums forms last year, so she understands the condition and its affects on my everyday life. My mum gets high rate indefinitely for care and mobility.

I have been told on another forum that my income support will go up by £31 is this correct?

LRM no care

I have informed everyone I could think of just in case. Income support say it can take a few weeks to sort out the disability premium, but it will be backdated :-P

My benefits advisor is shocked I haven't received any care and is coming out next week to look at my paperwork to see where it was refused and if I have reasons to appeal.
