    Hello there @Kayjadex and thanks for reaching out. I'm sorry you're having to take your son's DLA claim all the way through a tribunal, as the process can be quite stressful. If you need any support please do ask.

    It's difficult for us to say exactly why they've rung, and it would probably be an idea to ring them back and say you've missed a call. It's a pain that you'll have to chase it up, but that might be the best way to find out. 

    Keep us updated with how it goes, and take care this weekend :)
