wow, Borderslass, I have to do mine every 4 year, it totally messes with the blue badge and motability car!!

2shoes we had the visitor come from DWP was really straight forward, we had to set a bank account up in his appointees name only but to do that I needed a letter from DWP to say that I was his appointee.

Not sad at all!

It must be such a weight lifted off your mind, no more forms to fill in, and knowing tht she is sorted with DLA for the rest of her life!

I was happy enough with DS2 getting it for 4 years!

2shoes Mon 10-Jan-11 15:26:53

just spoken to dd's pead, we are now going to be reducing her epilepsy meds.......yikes, scarey stuff.

glittery Mon 10-Jan-11 17:15:08

we got an indefinate award when ds was 5 but i wonder if, when it all changes to the new PIP, the indefinate awards will still stand, anyone heard anything?

donkeyderby Mon 10-Jan-11 17:26:44

Fantastic! That is brilliant. But why hasn't she - and my DS - got this before?

TheArsenicCupCake Mon 10-Jan-11 17:33:10

That's fantastic news ( the dla)
