I could really scream at DLA, we was told to apply for DLA for sammy (Get it for Ben) so phoned up for a claim back at the end of may, my support worker filled it in and sent it back middle of june well anyway some how the form got lost at there end and they didn't find it until after the date they wanted it back. Now they are saying if Sammy does get DLA they can't back date the payment from May.

That's not right. Don't suppose you got proof of postage? I always do just in case. Can you appeal their decision if they are saying they lost it?

I wouldn't let anyone post things for me just in case they forget - had a bad experience similar to yours once so I always do everything myself now. Where is the support worker from? If she is from somewhere officially recognised then could she write a letter confirming when she posted it and asking them to reconsider the decision as they were the ones who lost it?
