DLA Mandatory Reconsideration Letter Tool

Welcome to our DLA Mandatory Reconsideration Letter Tool. We hope this will make it easier for you to ask the DWP to look again at their decision about your child’s claim for Disability Living Allowance.

You have to ask the DWP to look at their decision again (called a ‘mandatory reconsideration’) before you can appeal. If the DWP don’t change their decision, you can use the same wording on the appeal form. See How to win a DLA appeal for advice.

You should ask for a mandatory reconsideration within 1 calendar month of the date on the decision letter. If this time limit has passed, you can still ask as long as you are within 13 months. Use this tool and give reasons for the delay in the relevant box.
