I applied a couple months ago for my 4yo son who has probable autism and speech delay, and is in nappies etc. Was told I should have gone to CAB for help, by support worker, as most people who try applying themselves have to appeal to get it awarded. But I thought I'd give it a go myself. Hoping to get middle rate.
WELL am I shocked and happy. We got higher rate care component :-o But no mobility.
And apparently tax credits will go up?? Which I'm unsure about.
But this is FANTASTIC the money will help so much.
Yy low rate mobility from 5 only. Contact tax credit helpline, they will backdate to the start of the award. It is worth doing- our tax credits went up to just over £100 per week. Congrats btw, I found the form heart breaking to fill in, but worth it in the end
