    Hi James

    Do you mean that her daughter is 16 in Feb 17 and therefore the DLA is due to run out and she has to claim PIP instead? If so has her daughter had her assessment yet and if so what was the decision?

    Not all that different to my sorry tale of a life.

    We had our weekly income cut by £300 a week down to just over £200 a week.

    I lost my DLA which caused a reduction/loss in our other benefits.
