Many people will qualify for DLA at some point. DLA is a complex and difficult benefit to get, so we always recommend that you consult a Welfare Rights Advisor. If you have been awarded ESA, you need a copy of the ESA 85 report before completing a DLA form. If you have been declined ESA or an equivalent benefit you need expert advice. Although the DWP do not state it, we believe that ESA will become a prerequisite for a successful application. Here are some tools to help you understand what the issues are, and they are to be used only under direction of a Welfare Rights Advisor. Click on the image to download.
