High Importance: DLA Progress!!

November 28, 2013

Remember this, readers? Well, I’ve just received an email from the Lib Dem Disability Association saying:

Following concern raised by some of our members, myself included about an article that claimed anyone investigated for suspected fraud of DLA regardless of the outcome of the investigation claim would end and they would be forced to make a claim for PIP, the LDDA exec arranged to attend the DWP PPG meeting last night to raise the issue with our parliamentarians. I am delighted to be able to confirm that I have today revived confirmation of the following:
Where fraud is alleged on DLA case and is investigated and in most cases, where an accusation  is just malicious, and the investigation is dismissed the individual stays on DLA on the same terms as their previous award. If, upon examining the case, the DWP decides the case isn’t at the right payment level (either fraud or simply their needs are not representative of their existing DLA award [ often they are in greater need of assistance) then the payment rate may be adjusted up or down, or an invitation to be assessed under PIP is issued. 
In summary, if you’re accused of fraud but no evidence is found to suggest fraud, you are fine and stay on your current award. Which I am sure you will agree is a perfectly reasonable course of action.
This is good news and a relief to many.

    The D.L.A. is a bloody joke from start to finish . How can someone that has never heard of your illness decide if you are entitled to DLA or not . I will explain .
    I was assessed for D.L.A. by an inspector that had never even heard of my illness the reason I know because I asked her . I asked her have you ever heard of Microscopic Pollyingiitis with chronic Kidney failure . Answer was No . So how could she say I was not entitled to benefit . I did explain there was no cure for the illness and was controlled by medication of 47 tablets per day plus mute visits to hospital most of them emergencies .
    I did appeal against there ruling and had to wait 6 months with no bebnifits whatsoever . On the day they called me for the appeal I had a hand out to give to the panel explaining what I had . I handed out did not even look at it . I was then treated like a Bloody criminal for the next 50 minutes. It was decided that I should be awarded £20.65p per week after working for 34years that’s how they treat you . I was told I could appeal on there judgement but was so Bloody angry the way I was treated I refused . I did ask to go back in to the appeal room to tell them what to do with there £20.65 but was refused maybe just as well .
    So the moral to this is .
    In my opinion the whole thing starting from start to finish is a disgrace .
    But should I wish to take up a new language IE a Europiean one and paint myself another colour I am sure the out come would have been different . Or is that just me being synical ?
