TOPIC: DLA change in circumstances

DLA change in circumstances 7 years 8 months ago #42527

After extensive therapy and treatments I have now managed ro return to work for 17.5 hours per week. I thus consider my low rate mobility component of DLA to no longer be applicable.

My high care needs have become greater though (especially as I now have the extra stresses from going to work and associated travel) but I am already on the high care component of DLA.

I have written a letter to the DLA and explained my situation in the hope that they will just remove the mobility component and leave the care component the same. I cannot stand the stress of having to fill out all the forms again.

Does anyone know what tends to happen in these circumstances?

Thank you

You were correct. I have just received the whole pack again of the 3 different parts of DLA434.

I phoned them up and said that all I was doing was advising that as I was now managing to get to and from a part time job that despite my difficulties being unchanged I did not consider it appropriate for me to be claiming the mobility component. My care needs have subsequently increased but I am already on the high rate for care.

Apparently they cannot just stop mobility component without me filling out all the forms again. It seems crazy. Just because I have asked them to pay me less money I am now put through the stress of completing all the forms again.

On the accompanying letter with the forms it does state "If you do not return the claim pack we will take no further action". I'm wondering thus if not to send anything back and presumably everything will remain the same - or will it?

Sorry I don't understand. What is IMO? All I was wanting to tell them was to stop the mobility component as I didn't feel justified in claiming it despite my condition being unchanged. It has all now got very complicated.
