Sorry to hear about your wife, but I find what you said hard to believe unless it's because you're working then it will usually affect what benefits you can claim. Usually it's based on whether the doctor thinks you're fit for work or not. Yes! there are plenty of genuine people, but unfortunately there are plenty of immigrants & youth who have no interest in working and they make up the majority of Labour supporters. Under the Tories they will have to work for their benefits which is how it should be.
There's two types of DLA
Higher rate £49.10
Lower rate £18.65
