TOPIC: DLA Renewal Due

DLA Renewal Due 6 years 11 months ago #14330

Hi All, I am due for DLA renewal in about 5 months time. I was awarded 3 years last time.
I had my last renewal forms 6 months before the renewal date. However, I did here somewhere that the forms are now being sent out 3 months before the expire date, and are the forms shorter? (I hope!).

Hope someone can advise.
Thanks for your help.

Regards

Hi Skye,

Forms used to be sent out about 6 months in advance, they are now sent out around 3 months in advance.

Renewal forms appear to be now only four pages in length, see this thread HERE

Hope this helps.

Is this DLA580 similar to form DBD551 which is 8 pages long? If so I've a copy if anyone wants a copy.
