I applied for DLA (For DS) back in May, and they have asked for a Consultant report which I dont think they have yet.
They have sent me another letter today to say that they are sorry they havent given me a descision yet, but they will let me know when they will.
Will they backdate it from the day I have applied? I am hoping they might because if his claim is agreed I want to buy DS a bead table like they have in Dr's waiting rooms. He loves the one he has and plays on it for hours but its getting too small
yes - I had a huge lump sum backdated - they backdate it to when you apply for the form (assuming you got that piece of paper stamped from them) - or when they receive the application if not. Mine took literally months and months of backwards and forwards to consultants - it was about £2.5k backdated, that was a lovely surprise!
