Won My Appeal
« on: September 28, 2012, 07:38:58 AM »
Sorry to start another thread re work , insurance etc....but  i've got good news!
I won my appeal(In the  UK)re DLA....I will never be sure if my letter to the  PM helped but im so greatful...but  i told the truth.....and got a result.

I was so frightened.....but I told myself its not just for me...its for other people too.Hopefully my case makes the  govt think about people who have lost  a great deal to this virus.

I'd almost given up...I was so worn down.


Please dont give up ....and have someone from your Welfare Rights or council to support you.

Congrats Brit!  I always say people should contact the government when they need help with a government entity.  They're elected to basically represent their constituents.  That's great news!

Awesome news.  I too know how frustrating it can be.

Hi!

I couldn't sleep...so surfing online in the wee small hours!Guess what?I finally got my DLA payment....backdated nearly 9 months!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know its a long process.....at times   i wanted to give up....even after my appeal...because I kept getting told that they couldn't find the paperwork!!!!!!!!!!!

Now  i can repay my lovely family   who have helped me so much this year .
Please never give up......you will get there in the end.
