Hi not sure if the finance letter is a new thing. I claim DLA for two of my children and have never had a finance letter so cant comment. The waiting can vary my only advice would be to keep ringing them for updates and chase the reports they are still waiting for yourself x

Hi there, thanks for your response. The medical reports have been faxed over urgently last monday, so i suppose we just need to be patient now and wait for their response. Hopefully it won't be too much longer though xxx

Hi all, received the award letter yesterday through the post. They have decided Chiara is due high rate care and low rate mobility. 2 friends (1 that works for dla and another friend who has a boy who has aspergers, who get high rate care and mobility) suggested that this was incorrect when they read the award and also Chiaras diagnosis reports (have several of these) they both said to phone them and ask them why they came to that decision. I did this today, and it appears that they MAY have made a mistake, as the report they have received, which is not even from chiaras specialist states, that mobility wise she is fine, but the reports that i have, (from her actual specialist and ed' pysch' state that she has some major difficulties with that side of things and lack of fear/danger etc. When i explained and read the report to the lady on the phone, she said what i was reading, was not what they had received and that she will get the decision maker to phone me on monday to reconsider the award. so fingers crossed they will get it right this time. I just wondered if anyone else had been in this situation? xxx

Will do Daniel. I just hope they get it right this time, even our specialist said that she thinks Chiara should receive high rate mobility, so we'll see how it goes tomorrow :-) x
