DLA580

I recently received my DLA580 Renewal form Which I attempted to fill in myself I was told later that I shouldn’t have put some information down about attending a CBT course to help with my condition it could be conceived I was getting better when the reverse is actually the truth .Someone from MIND rang the DLA up & told them I spoiled my form & could they please send me another form ?

When the form arrived however it was the old DLA1A claim form so MIND rang them back to inform them they’d sent the fresh claim form not the DLA580 renewal form

They told MIND that the DLA850 form doesn’t exist & that the DLA1A claim form is the correct form to fill in

Now I’m really anxious & freaking out because the present climate of trying to reduce people that are on disability etc that the DLA people are actually given me mis information or trying to get me to fill in the new claim form DLA1A instead of the correct renewal form the DLA580 so I will be judged as a new claimant & easier to refuse instead of a renewal ..another issue is I now have two return forms bith with the black printed DLA address but one as team U.2.2 3209 written above the address but I can’t remember which envelope came with which form .

I noticed reading some of the messages on here that the DLA580 was on a trail period in some areas does anyone know if this is still the case if so which areas[i’m in West Yorks] if not is the DLA580 the standard renewal form now ?

Thanks

Hello and welcome to CAG. Am I right in thinking that you are asking about DLA rather than the NHS?

 

If so, can I recommend that you have your thread moved to the Benefits forum here, where there are some very helpful people. Click on the red triangle at the bottom of your post and ask the site team to move it for you. If you have a title in mind, tell them, otherwise they'll think of something for you.

DLA580 has been rolled out nationally (this happened in January).

 

If you complete the DLA1A you won't be treated as a new claimant, renewal will be done in the usual way, unless of course you try to renew after the renewal period has expired.

My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

 

 

Please do not seek, offer or produce advice on a consumer issue via private message; it is against

forum rules to advise via private message, therefore pm's requesting private advice will not receive a response.

(exceptions for prior authorisation)

Probably the same thing as always happens. Some staff likely aren't aware that it's been rolled out.

 

They certainly exist because I have one sitting in my living room, which I received last week and I'm not in any of the test areas.

Nope, mine just has the Blackpool address on it. I'd be inclined to send it to the one that has a team marked on it though (I take it the postal address is the same?)
