    Hi @Paigemma welcome you to the community.

    If your other daughter is under 18 have you applied for Disability Living Allowance for them?

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    That's incorrect advice, sorry. DLA can only be claimed if a person is under 16. If they are over 16 then it's PIP now and not DLA. PIP has replaced DLA.


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
