I need guidance about assessor and DLA

edited January 2019 in PIP, DLA, and AA
My husband had indefinite high rate DLA for care and mobility, was assessed before Christmas and the result was he is now considered only able to get standard rate for both, reviewed in 10 months. Have asked for the mandatory reconsideration forms, emailed our MP and fully expect to have to go to a Tribunal. As I was/am a Carer professionally, and our Daughter a qualified Nurse, we cope with Hubbys needs as he can't cope with going out and meeting people as in specialists. he has both physical and mental issues, and is often suicidal so we have to watch his moods. I need help and guidance please, have also complained about the assessor as she has reported things that didnt occur and made errors.
