Hi, my name is Lee1966!
I want to know why the green card was scrapped. Over the years it seems that the point of recognising disability has been forgotten and the green card was perfect for those with hidden disabilities. When DLA changed to the current system the criteria changed and it was taken from me. Now I'm confused and lost all the support and recognition I received. I don't care about the money and my green card never came with money. All it did was provide proof that I have a disadvantage. It was approved and acknowledged by my GP and hospital consultant. Now I refuse to claim DLA again as I don't need the money but recently had difficulty at work trying to explain an extened period off. I showed them my green card and they had no idea what it was and seemed to think I was lying. Has anyone else had similar problems?
