Confused about benefits?

Do you need to claim for

    Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
    Incapacity Benefit
    Employment and Support Allowance

It’s a minefield and the forms are legendary for their complexity and stupid questions.

I discovered a useful website which gives advice on completing these nightmare forms. Check out Benefits and Work.

This site has a forum and free newsletter. They provide guides to these benefits at £18.95 – it’s worth it if you’re claiming for the first time, you’ve been turned down, or are not getting what you think you’re entitled to. They also provide training.

Since DLA has no valid questions deaf can answer, and IB is to be scrapped, just how much advice can we get ? Until the DLA form actually includes the point deafness is the difficulty ‘getting around’, we have to hack a limb off to claim…. The only answer is a DLA re-write or an allowance specific for deafness and loss. Perhaps if the deaf claimed for the loss of hearing instead of demanding money for culture instead……
