Another search-engine quickie “can I claim DLA and ESA at the same time?
I’ve covered this in other posts, but yes, you can. The mobility component of DLA is officially described as “help with getting around” and that’s exactly what it’s for. Whether or not you’re working is irrelevant.
However, the natural cynic in me thinks that the job you do will affect your claim. If you’re a desk-jockey, you should be fine, if you’re a National Hunt jockey, not so much.
I am, though, hearing that some people have been denied DLA because their ESA claim failed – I’m not sure that’s even legal. Anyone know for sure?
