Hi everyone. I just got the DID card. What benefits can I get with it? Please someone let me know about your experience with your DID card :)

    Welcome to the community @DanielZajac27 :)

    I found this on the DID Website

    The benefits may vary from place to place, the DID Card may allow you to:

    • obtain ONE free ticket for carer who is accompanying you and providing you with the appropriate assistance
    • get discounts, special offers or concessionary rates for disabled 
    • providing the cardholder with disabled identification
    • no longer having to carry the paper entitlement documents to prove disability exists
    • personal and sensitive information included on your paper entitlement documentation will no longer need to be shown to organisations such as NI number, medical condition, date of birth, address etc. as the DID card is all that is necessary. 
    I hope you found this helpful and hopefully some of our members can share their experiences with their DID card.
