Before i went thru the STRESSFUL AND EMOTIONAL FORM FILLING AND HOME VISIT, I was awarded DLA for life..after home visit..I was awarded 12 points in total..£22 a week!!
I asked for case management to look at my case again..this time with a 3 page NEW DOCTOR'S REPORT..I WAS EVENTUALLY AWARDED 12 points mobility and 10 for daily living! I'm still..altho GREATFUL..for 22 points..but I would like to appeal and ask the tribunal..that if..as my Dr had stated..I will never work again and my illness is debilitating and joints disintegrating.. Y DO I HAF TO DO THIS IN ANOTHER 20 MONTHS? I WONT BE ANY BETTER..WORSE IN FACT..AND MY STANDARD OF LIVING DAY TO DAY WILL PROBABLY HAVE GONE MORE DOWN HILL THAN IT IS NOW!!! I FEEL SICK ALREADY..

    hi Grateful and welcome

    The DWP have the right to reassess at any time.  It is unlikely that an appeal will change the length of your award and even if they do the DWP can still reassess when they want
