TOPIC: successful application - I think!

successful application - I think! 6 years 9 months ago #50245

I've just looked in my bank account to see a large payment in. It isn't child tax credit and it is the exact amount it would be for 8 weeks of middle rate care and lower rate mobility. I think my DLA claim has been successful at the first attempt! That is completely down to this site and the guide I downloaded.

My psychiatrist must have been really quick providing them with further info as I only got the letter saying they'd asked for more info 10 days ago.

I'm waiting for the postie to arrive now so I can confirm what I think has happened. It is such a relief. Yesterday we couldn't put fuel in the car - today we can.

Thank you web site makers! :)

Hi Wendy

I hope you are right. Your bank statement should give some indication of where the payment came from.

the referance will be NI number followed by DWP followed by the benefit so in this case DLA

ref would look like

AA 11 22 33 BB DWP DLA

the last letters change for benefit so it could have ESA IB JSA IS ect ect

Our statement doesn't show that - it never does. Apart from the amounts we can't tell the difference between child tax, child benefit and housing benefit - but it is the wrong amount and wrong week for any of them.

I wish the postie would hurry up!

The postie came with no letter so I phoned them up. I have been awarded middle rate care and lower rate mobility on an indefinate basis (til DLA is scrapped and I'm reassessed for PIP). I am so, so, so, so, relieved.
