Hello to all,
In brief I have been in reciept of IB for last 10 years and also get DLA care (middle). I have applied for mobility component of DLA and due an ATOS visit.
I have read such horror stories about ATOS it's given me the heebie geebies although I am confident in meeting the criteria myself. I am a little confused though, IF I don't meet their criteria for whatever reason for the mobility component it appears that not only would I not recieve that part but that I could lose the care component also and that I may even lose my IB as being classed fit for work and be expected to sign on for JSA.
I also read that people have had their HB cut as they are then not eligible due to the change in their circumstances.
Can any one verify what the situation is regarding this scenario.
Many thanks, great site.
