•Has anyone else been to court and didn’t get it?? 
•How many times have people applied/ appealed??

    Hi,

    To constantly re-apply using the same evidence you previously used will very likely see you being refused each time.

    You can be genuine and have a disability but if those descriptors don't apply to you then you won't score the points for an award.

    Have you ever sent any evidence to support your claim? If you have, what evidence have you sent?

    Sometimes it better just to accept 
    what you have been awarded rather than loose it that’s what I did.

    Sometimes it is better to accept that after 4 refusals you just don't qualify?

    I have never been awarded it, so I am not losing anything

    @laura7 I believe @Yadnad is speaking about his own personal experience not yours. Good luck.
