Question by Della F: How long should I wait for a decision from DLA?
I applied for DLA 4-5 weeks ago and received a letter from them the following week saying they were looking at my claim. The next day they informed me they were asking my physiotherapist for a report. That was sent to them 2-3 weeks ago. I am still waiting and feel like tearing my hair out lol. I keep checking my welcome mat in case the postman is on a very late round. I am worried sick in case I am refused as I am struggling to afford travel expenses and such to 2-3 hospital appointments every week. I also heard from somewhere that if I haven’t been refused by now then it’s usually good news. Is this generally the case?
Answer by Wendy
It can take up to 12 weeks but once they say you have it it’s backdated to the day you put in the claim.
