Hello there,

I'm in the midst of completing the DLA form for my son, but because of the school break the form isn't going to be back on time for the deadline set on the form - I need some of the reports from the pre-school to send with it.

Can I ask for an extension. will be 3/4 days most? anyone had any luck with this

I would send the DLA form in on time and send the other reports once you have them.

What choc said, add a note to say reports to follow. Photocopy the form and send it special delivery too.

If you miss the "deadline" don't they just pay you 3 days less or whatever?

I think you get 6 weeks to fill it out from the date stamp, so if awarded you potentially 'lose' that 6 weeks worth of payments.

yes, you lose the 6 weeks. Happened to me (took me 3 months to complete).

if you miss the 6 weeks and you get an award it starts on the day they receive the form.
