    Hi @derek123

    Good Evening & Welcome 🙏🙏

    It’s great to meet you today ☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️

    I’m very very sorry 😐😐😐😐  to read your post.

    “Wow” things have taken a “tumble” since your “neighbour” contacted the “DWP”

    Do you have a local “CAB” office as they will be able to offer you some help/advice????

    Please please let me know if you have any further questions???

    Irrespective of what had been previously said or intimated, it would seem that the DWP now have doubts about your entitlement to your DLA.
    They think that they have evidence to prove this.
    What are the DWP doing now - what have they told you what their intentions are?

    It seems like the neighbor has too much free time. Get in contact with your local CAB office. Ask for advice. Can you move away from this neighbor or not? Feel free to ask any other questions here.

    I am struggling to get my head around this.  Your neighbour reported you 12 years ago, and they have now stopped your DLA for suspected fraud?  You are in touch with advice?  So they should be able to advise you on the next steps. 

    It doesn't matter that the DWP told you 12 years ago that you should improve to the point where you would be able to start walking a little and going out.  If you can walk more than 50 metres regularly then you should have let them know that your mobility had improved.

    I'm sorry to hear you're going through this process @derek123.

    Unfortunately it's unlikely that any of our community members will be able to tell you whether the decision was correct/incorrect without knowing more about your circumstances, but please do let us know how it goes, and we'll try and advise where we can.
