Pre-Ordered the new Edition 43
Disability Rights Handbook earlier this month
It arrived on Friday so have been having a good read up it is quite an education to me .
And it's keeping the old grey matter ticking over . :)
Cheers

    Please bear in mind it is very general when it comes to some aspects of some benefits. The wording can be misleading and would need to be cross checked with the CPAG welfare benefits handbook to be sure of meanings.

    It costs a lot. I used to use it at work for dla. We won every case!

    Many thanks @mikehughescq yes I did realise that but with so many holes in my knowledge ,lulled into a false sense of security with an indefinite award of DLA at 68 the a steep high stress learning curve ,and back to jumping through hoops for the DWP !
     In the distant past, three of their own drs had examined me on my Conditions over the years.
    Now I have to Prove how my conditions effect me Daily 
    high BP, even higher ,stress levels through the roof ect ect the dwp do it on purpose IMO many will give up ,so money saving ? :D:D:D
    Then @debbiedo49 at  £18.50 (confessionally rate ) I thought it cheap enough to ME to fill in the gaps ,I hope then a little wiser should l  need to go further for professional advice after my f2f 
    And yes @kaz7762 I am also sadly lacking at writing things down (short term memory like a sieve ) so can highlight sections i think relevant to me  and then cross check as already advised.
    Its like being back in school again  :)
    Good luck all reading if you feel its right then do your research and fight for your rights 
    Cheers
