Hi,

Has anyone got some advice about filling out my first DLA claim form? I have heard that there are some good web sites, but I cant seem to find them.

Thank you in advance

benefits and work (sorry don't have enough posts to add links yet) is a really good resource although it costs £19.45 for a year membership. I've found the guides really quite helpful though. If you're short of cash drop me a PM and I'll have a look and see what guides might be relevant for you.

Your local CAB or Welfare Rights have specialists who complete DLA forms on your behalf free of charge.

This is true but sadly the CAB are hugely overworked with the benefits system right now and it's only going to get worse with the current joke of a government making cuts to legal aid funding.

 

I don't know if anyone here is willing to get involved but it might be worth getting a professional membership at Benefits and Work for CAG with a view to helping with benefit claims. Obviously funding might be an issue but perhaps a donation drive for this might work.

There is some free stuff from Benefits and Work.

 

Can I ask what your disability is please? Because there are some charities (such as RNIB) who have information about DLA.

Hi and thanks for all reply's. My claim is for a broken disc in the back which causes lower partial paralysis I.m now on support allowance due to myself obtaining MRI evidence for the medical services. Therefore they have now conceded that I do have a genuine back problem.

As for CAB you are right the poor folks are snowed under and look very unhappy to say the least. I therefore do not with to load them also with my problems.
