    Sounds like you might be  on the  low rate care and mobility

    The amount for enhanced care for 4 weeks £350.60 is the £338.00 for part of 4 weeks?
  • AndMacAndMac Member Posts: 27 Pioneering
    My guess is that the day of payments has changed, and been brought forward to an earlier day in the week. The payment would then be for 27 days, and not 28. It will be back to 28 next month, the full four weeks.
    I noticed some slight variation in my payments in this way when first transferring. As I went from zero care and higher mobility to standard care and enhanced mobility I actually got more money than on DLA.. Rare, but it does happen,

    Thanks for your comments my rates are high for care and mobility this will be my third payment and all three have been £338.00 should I contact the dwp or contact a disabled charity to investigate tia

    Your best bet is to ring CAB to ask for advice. Don’t rush to tell DWP yet. This is rare but can happen.

    Hi,

    Are you 100% sure that your award is Enhanced for both parts? Please check your award because what you're receiving doesn't make any sense.

    Why do they need to ring CAB? and why mustn't they rush to tell DWP? Sorry but i don't understand why you've given this advice.

    The amount doesn't include the mobility part as I have car on motability sorry for any confusion

    Enhanced daily living is £87.65 per week, which is £350.60 every 4 weeks. If you're only receiving £338 then you'll need to ring DWP and ask why you're only receiving that amount. Only they will be able to tell you what's going on.

    EDIT - posted this before I saw the previous reply. 

    Enhanced on both would be £587.80 for 4 weeks.

    You're quite a way off that. As Poppy said, it might be worth double checking your award.

    Saying that, I can't come up with any combination that makes £338

    Hello @Paul_green. Have you been able to get in touch with the DWP to ask why you're only receiving £338?
