With the help of our determined colleague Sue, one very happy client has successfully challenged a year-old decision on his entitlement to disability benefit*.
The pair worked through the eligibility criteria and claim process to prove his right to severe disability premium.
With a brilliant result. At the end of June the client was paid over £4000 in arrears and his weekly payment rose to £190. Understandably, he was “most grateful”.
Sue and the team at our Banstead office were delighted. Sue said:
“This is a great result for Mr….. Everyone should get the level of support they’re entitled to. If wrong decisions are made, it’s important we’re here to help clients make their case and have the best quality of life they can.”

Disability premium is an extra amount automatically added to Income Support or income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) if you qualify for it.
