Had a quick look but couldnt seem to input fact that we are both in receipt of DLA, I will give DLA a call in the morning to see if I get a helpful operator.

As an alternative you could try the Benefits Enquiry Line (BEL) .

Leaving aside the heavy stuff, DLA will get you into a lot of venues like theatres/concerts etc. two for one, and if you've got higher rate mobility, you can easily get a free bus pass and have lots of days out for free. Don't forget the CEA card - two for one in the cinema.
