Phoenix approached BenefitsWise in 2013. Diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome and living on his own, Phoenix was already in receipt of Employment and Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance. Convinced that he wasn’t on the correct rates, he had applied several times on his own for higher rate Disability Living Allowance mobility and care allowances but was repeatedly declined. Having taken the time to fully understand Phoenix’s case, BenefitsWise concluded that the DWP’s decision to decline was wrong.

Phoenix expects to receive his Disability Living Allowance to Personal Independence Payment transfer letter soon and has asked us to work with him again when it arrives.
