Disability Benefits Review

I've just seen a piece on the news about the Disability Benefits review.
Apparently when a claimant is asked if they watch television and they answer yes it could be assumed by the assessor that the claimant can sit comfortably for long periods Shocked
Crazy.

Re: Disability Benefits Review

Well I'd agree they can sit for long periods but comfortably is ridiculous.
No idea what it is with DLA but they've always operated on the basis that you're guilty before being proven innocent. It's one of the most difficult depts in the DWP to get any joy with.

Re: Disability Benefits Review

For one or two people I know sitting for long periods is just about all they know as movement is very painful.

Re: Disability Benefits Review

SHMBO falls into that category Strat. And is on a full disability living allowance.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
