Almost the standard reference when it comes to DLA ... and PIP.
What do I expect at appeal? What should I wear?
Leah, don't get ahead of yourself, hopefully you won't have to go to an appeal. They might well reconsider the application and decide after looking at it again, that Logan can have the benefit.

PS when is Logan three? It's my understanding that he won't be able to get the mobility component until then.
He turns 3 in 4 weeks from today. We are currently planning a joint third birthday party. Seems like yesterday he was turning one however..
Ahh, bless him.

S still loves a proper birthday celebration and he is 28.

Well I have finished my appeal letter. I am going to send them the letter today at the post office in town. I have 2 copies of it but the other copy is too rude so will end up being a burn letter instead. How much does it cost to use secure recorded post? I have listed reasons why he cannot walk as well as examples of situations.
You need Recorded Delivery, not very expensive. Alternatively, if you want to be sure it gets there next day you need what used to be called Special Delivery, but they've changed the name and I can't think what it's called now. About £6-7 last time I used it. That's my favoured service for anything involving tax or benefits. Once they lost a form I'd sent for months!!!
Depends on weight. £7.50 to £12. I've used it a few times with important documents, and been so relieved the next day to see they have been signed for. You see the signature. It seems a lot, but so with taking some anxiety away. Doesn't speed up the process.

I don't care about how long it takes. But this is a document with sensitive information on it (medical details) etc so I need to be able to know that it gets there safely and is not stolen, or lost in transit either.
Then special delivery is the safest. Just trying to help.
