    seems fair enough to me, although I do believe it should be your own GP who makes the decision not some stranger who knows nothing about you

    Post Disability Living Allowance Reform

    There are plans to replace DLA in 2012/2013 with Personal Independence Payments.

    The consultation documents are here. Your views are sought.

    http://www.dwp.gov.uk/consultations/...a-reform.shtml

    The new benefit will have two components. One for walking problems and one for care needs. There wil be two rates of benefit paid for each component. No details yet on the amounts.

    The proposals are that there will be two rates for the daily living component (three rates for DLA care) & two rates for the mobility component.

    The Department will take into account the experience from the introduction of the Work Capability Assessment for Employment and Support Allowance,so it is likely that the new medical assessment will be similiar to the WCA for ESA,which should be updated soon to include the use of aids & adaptations such as manual wheelchairs.

    New criteria will be applied for entitlement,the emphasis will be on evidence & activities.

    One part will look at how a person can get around. The other
    part will look at how a person can carry out all the things they
    need to do to take part in everyday life.
