i had Bowel Cancer in 2009 when I was 62 but didn't claim DLA. Now at 69, although I am cancer free (cross fingers), I am beginning to experience many age/stress related problems. I checked Attendance Allowance notes and it stated that I did not need to actually have physical help in order to claim. I filled in the form and have been rejected on the grounds I did not prove I needed help! I have appealed and requested a assessment but am still awaiting a reply. I checked the PIP checklist and I scored 8 on the care list. What more can I do please?
