I've been on DLA Mobility Component Higher rate since 1991, was awarded lifetime so haven't needed a medical or anything since. I didn't know i could also receive Care Component until a few days ago.
Since my accident i've needed help washing/dressing and can't do any cooking because of my disability and need someone to keep an eye on me when walking. How do i go about claiming for Care Component? Do i just get a form and fill in the Care Component section and ignore the Mobility Component section as i already get that? i'm a bit confused. I have missed out on alot of money over the year's that i was entitled too (do they backdate it lol).
