    Hi Karen,

    If you had the car for Mobility you will lose that and they will be in contact with you regarding that. Your Blue Badge may i ask what points you scored the Mobility part in? Was it the "moving around part" of mobility? Those with a Standard award and scored 8 points in the "moving around part" Automatically qualify for the Badge. Take a look at the award notice. This also goes for the Bus pass too and the disabled rail card.

    As for what you do next if you think you should have been award more points then you have just 28 days to ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration (MR) please be aware that in asking for this they look at the whole award so you could either, lose everything, remain the same or have award increased. Most MR decisions remain the same so Appeal Tribunal would be the next step if it does. This is a very long and stressful process. Only you can make this decision. Did you send evidence to support your claim? was it a PIP review? or DLA before?

      Was that in "moving around" or "planning and following Journey's"?

      It makes a huge difference if it was Moving around, as you would still be eligible for Blue Badge, Bus pass and disabled rail card.

      That's good at least you won't lose those other things. Dont feel that way. So many people ahve lost everything when transfering from DLA. Even those with a PIP review have lost money too. Have a think about the MR. Maybe give CAB a ring they can help with the MR and appeal tribunal if need be.
