We're just going through it now. My wife has been on indefinite DLA since 2009, so they took a while to get round to us. Her condition has seriously deteriorated since then, because it does. When we filled in the form and answered the questions, we found a website that told us what our score should be.

To get the full mobility and the full care, you need to score 12 in each category, for a total of 24 points.

My wife's score was 72.

Yet still they want to do a face-to-face assessment. Tw@s.

Anyway, we're going to have to sell our V70. The wife can no longer use it, we need a full on wheelchair accessible vehicle.

its a nightmare isn't it

My esa ended as effectively i was in the wrong group after deterioration but id been informing the wrong department @the dwp so applied again and they found against me after 6 months waiting ... so i had to write up an 8 page doc on why they were wrong, and that's before the inevitable appeal
Stress is unbelievable \;(

Angry

First of all I think that the Government has been exceptionally brave to tackle the shambles of the welfare bill & recipients, because waste and fraud were, and still are to a point, a disgrace, and therefore genuine claimants were/are being penalised.

Secondly however, the way that they have tackled this waste and fraud, has also been a disgrace, and a disaster for some!

Genuinely needy claimants are having their allowances substantially reduced or stopped , whilst waste & fraud is still rife.

We must stop this waste, but not this way, not by appointing a bunch of useless amateurs to assess disabled people and their needs, and getting so much wrong.

People in my grouping I.e. With 'progressive' diseases such as Parkinson's and MS & also MND, are having their allowances removed, only to go to court & to have the decisions reversed by the Judges, but at what cost, if the Government lose and have to pay the claimant's costs?

Progressive means it will get worse , not better, therefore funding may also need to be progressive ', not only for those groups mentioned, but for others also, but the thick amateurs assessing people don't understand even this one word from the English language so how much longer can they be allowed to continue?

I repeat, we really must stop the waste, for everyone's benefit, but not like this!

Another sham is insurance ...because I had a bad back before ...and by this I mean digging the garden and had back pain for 3 days ..3 DAYS so 2 days off work ....
Yea we all had them and there fore I cannot claim ....the car crash has nothing to do with my back pain
Bearing in mind 3 days and back to work and and no problems after this and then 2 yrs after crash i'm still in pain can hardly move but insurance say ...NO pay out was car 2 and 1K for me ....

My Mrs is on DLA, highest care and lower mobility, and her mobility has deteriorated but we put off changing her claim in fear of what PIP has in store for us. She has enduring mental illness and other illnesses in addition to her osteoarthritis. When she originally claimed she could stand and walk limited distances without pain but now she is in constant pain and needs her scooter whenever we go out. She really should be on higher mobility or be given hip replacements but we're to scared to claim and she's too young for replacements at 50. Catch 22

As I understand it, at cumbrianfemale's age, DLA will be replaced by PIP in any event, so you may be simply putting off the evil day, during which time she is suffering, perhaps unnecessarily?

If the fear is 'losing benefits' then that is understandable, but the answer is to prove that she is in need of them , and not only can the doctor help, but so can you in several ways - friends of mine in the same frame of mind, have managed with some help, and it appears that there are now fewer appeals & court cases?

Genuine claimants should never fear the assessment, especially if 'without medication' they present as genuinely in need of help?
