TOPIC: assessments-disability related expenditure

assessments-disability related expenditure 7 months 1 week ago #170947

Hi.
Does anyone know what can be included when considering Disability Related Expenditure? My daughter has just been assessed for her access to non-residential services and I think the figure is too low..

Thank you.

This is not really an area that we deal with but treat it as it says, any expenditure that is related to the claimants disability, so for example; bandages and mediation, specialist foods, specialist equipment, incontinence pads, insurance for a wheelchair, savings in relation to regularly replaced large item such as mattress, etc.

You may need to provide evidence of the requirement for the charges to be accepted.
