DLA Mandatory Reconsideration

Hi, we have just received a letter to say that DLA has been refused for our child who has Down syndrome. I’m going to request a mandatory reconsideration, just wondered how long we can expect to wait for a decision? (it took 6 weeks from sending the original claim to receiving the refusal letter which I hear is pretty quick!). Thanks

That was quick for the initial decision! We waited nearly 5 months to be turned down completely. We'd received DLA since DD was born so a real shock to be rejected outright.

Our mandatory reconsideration only took 3 weeks but they upheld their decision to reject our claim.

Good luck and hope you are successful with yours.

Thank you. I’m really hoping the additional evidence we sent is enough for them to change their decision and award DLA, it’s such a horrible process sad
