problems with DLA for my child.
My daughter has been in receipt of higher rate care, lower rate mobility for approx. 5 years. We have just completed her renewal forms and been told that she is no longer entitled to the care component. Her circumstances haven't changed. She still needs the same amount of care. Her condition is permanent. We have never had any trouble when previously renewing her claim. I asked for a mandatory reconsideration as I believe the decision is wrong. I have phoned today for an update to be told that they have not looked at it as a reconsideration but as a change of circumstances and they are still refusing to give her the care component. I have now been told I have to wait for a letter off them and put in another request for a mandatory reconsideration - I have just done all this! Has anyone been through anything like this before? Can anyone offer any advice? It would be greatly appreciated.
