DLA appeal and backdated money

Discussion in 'UK Tax Credits and Benefits' started by jennifer.gray3, Feb 18, 2005.

  1. I atttended a DLA appeal tribunal yesterday and was awarded middle rate of
    care from the 26th March 2004. Until yesterday I was getting the low rate of
    care, can anyone tell me how long they will take in sorting out how much
    they owe me. My guess is a lot longer than if they had over paid me.

    Thanks
    Jenny

    Give them a chance. First they have to be notified of the appeal decision.
    I've seen it done in just a couple of weeks from appeal decision, depending
    on backlogs.

    The paper work has to get back to Blackpool, this I would suspect go off today after this weeks batch of appeals
    is finished.

    Given them a week to update your details on computer.

    Then it has to tie in with a tape run and your pay date.

    No longer than three weeks.


    Do not take as gospel the paper work you get showing how they worked out what they owe you.

    Sit down and do the sums yourself.

    Its about £1,050 to £1,200 they owe you

    differance is about £23 a week not sure of numbers only get mobility at higher rate (so far)

    Work out the difference between low rate care and middle rate care, then
    contact them and tell them how many weeks/money they owe you. Then you will
    wait about 2 weeks for your money. Don't delay get on with this today, any
    holds ups will be up to you now.

    Going off when the person originally posted, I'd say she should have
    her money by mid March - it takes about two weeks for the paperwork to
    get back to DLA unit, then another two weeks for them to process that
    and send out payment. I'd guess she's got another two weeks to go
    before she'll see the money in her bank account...

    Its been awarded.
    You know that, I know that - but takes more than a day for DLA at Blackpool
    to be told it.
