    You cannot claim Disability Living Allowance and PIP at the same time. You can apply for a blue badge online and as long as you meet the criteria :)

    Hello @Maclin Pleased to meet you. Sorry to hear this .

    I believe there are changes around Blue Badges invisible illness or certain conditions , disabilities..  Are being counted.  Have a look on the news webpages for further details and information.

    You could reapply.  Even appeal any decision I am sure you can. 

    Might be worth speaking to CAB for additional advice..

    Just a thought.

    Take care.
