I applied for DLA either March or April, and have just noticed DLA have credited my bank account with an odd amount.

I can't phone them now because they will be closed, so am wondering, because letter hasn't arrived yet to confirm, what rate of DLA DD has been awarded.

When they make the first payment, is it usual for it to be a figure which adds up to X amount of weeks? Or would they issue a first payment that was X amount of weeks and X amount of days?

And if I tell you the exact amount I have been paid, would you be quite confident you knew what rate DD has been awarded?

Or do I have to wait until the morning to phone them?

And of course, if I applied in March, and they had backdated, part of the DLA would be at the 2012 rates wouldn't it?
So that might explain the odd figure?

Does anyone have any idea what the 2012 rates of DLA were please?

Did you get sorted? I am in the same boat!
