Appealing a Disability Allowance Decision
Individuals have the right to appeal if they are dissatisfied with the outcome of their DLA claim. Requesting a mandatory reconsideration, where the decision is reevaluated, is the first step in the appeals process.
After the required reconsideration, if the person is still dissatisfied, they may file an appeal with the Social Security Tribunal. This is an impartial organisation that decides social security appeals.
Anyone considering filing an appeal is advised to get advice from a citizen’s advice service or other similar organisation. They can offer helpful suggestions and direction regarding the appeals process.
The DLA is an essential benefit for people with a disability or health issue that affects their ability to move around or go about their daily lives.
Understanding the requirements for eligibility and the application procedure will help you or a loved one get the assistance they require.
