    If they decide your needs are the same, it will continue, if they decide you are entitled to a higher rate they will backdate the extra from the day you reported your change. If they decide you don't qualify they will stop it from the day of their decision

    Hi dawn, i reported a change, i had to fill out a new how your disability affects you form and have a new medical. But yes if you are awarded higher rate it will be back dated to when you reported your change if it remains the same then it will just continue, although as with all DWP rules & regs they could decide you don't qualify, even though you did before.

    ?Good luck.

      I don't know yet. Had my assessment 9 weeks ago this Thursday and still haven't heard. I've rang them 3 times only to be told the same thing. A decision hasn't been made yet.

      Hope you get on alright   I hate seeing people being self righteous on these forums   I know what it's like to work all your days and through no fault of your own have to claim benefits.  Hope you get good news
