hi, been awarded DLA, lower rate care, dont know whether to appeal or not. What are my chances of getting Middle Rate Care? My GP report says she needs freq attention throughout day in connection with bodily functions. That is relating to middle rate care i think.


What is the process of appeal? Just based on paperwork, or a similar medical like atos kind? Would LRC stop whilst appeal is in process, or LRC would continue? If they decide no DLA/LRC is awarded, they will ask for money back?


I hear an appeal could cause the LRC award to be revised to nothing, so thats a worst case scenario.

You do risk your award, but the most risk as at Tribunal, and the least risk is that the DWP will take it away (though there is a very small chance, but as you have doctor's evidence makes it less likely). If you do challenge the decision, make a 'diary' of a typical day, the help you need and at what time during the day, to show frequency.
