Applied for a reconsideration to dd's DLA. Was previously getting mrc, lrm. She's been awarded hrc, lrm! I sent the form in 5 days late (due to severe problems we were having at the time with dd - school, mental health etc) so they've only backdated it to the day they received it, not the 6 weeks previous telephone call. Can I challenge this? Or is it just best left alone?

Well done smile

Don't know about backdating.

Good memory polar I think our reconsideration took as long as yours! Got there in the end though.

Thanks polter and ineed ...

It's bitter sweet though this DLA isn't it? I'm pleased for the recognition but it highlights our dc's problems. I'm so grateful to get the upgrade that I'm not sure it's worth asking about backdating the 6 weeks.

Yah well done. Glad you got award sorted.

Don't forget to inform tax credits as there's a premium bit for hrc.

Thanks youare ... I'm just renewing my tax credits now online blush

I haven't received the letter informing me of the hrc yet, so I'm going to renew on old basis then ring them with hrc info when I get the letter. I think that's probably the best way to do it.
