DLA phone number

Suffering from a disability is going to make a heavy impact on your life. As such, it is expected that assistance – both personally and financial – is going to be needed during the term of your illness. The UK Government created a benefit entitled Disability Living Allowance or DLA for short in order to assist disabled people in the country. Having been distributed successfully over the years, DLA is now a central part of benefits reform in the UK as it slowly becomes renamed and re-branded to the Personal Independence Payment – or PIP – for short. If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of having to claim DLA, or you wish to find out more about an already existing claim, then you can call the Dial2Donate DLA contact number. The number listed on this page will connect directly to an operative.

The largest proportion of phone calls made to the DLA contact number is in relation to new claims. A large number of people have to make new claims each year and need assistance in doing so. There are a number of forms to fill in when applying for DLA along with a large amount of information required to finish off the application. While a number of technologically savvy customers prefer the online forms, there are many who still make the call to speak to someone in order to assist them filling in their application. One wrong piece of information will mean that you will have to start your application again, and there will be a further delay in receiving your benefit. We highly advise that in order to ensure your application gets processed quickly and correctly that you pick up the telephone. Make the call to the customer service team on the DLA contact number listed on this page, and when making your call a portion of the cost will get donated to charity.

Below are a number of common questions that people who are wishing to claim DLA ask. If you have any enquiries other than these or you’d like to explore them more, please do not hesitate to telephone the customer service team within the DLA department by calling the DLA Contact Number here.

Common reasons why people phone the DLA contact number

What is the difference between PIP and DLA?

In short, there is no difference between PIP and DLA. The Personal Independence Payment is the new name for Disability Living Allowance, and while DLA is still in existence, the PIP benefit is slowly taking over. PIP started to replace the DLA benefits payment from April 2013 and whereas new claims are made under the PIP banner, existing Disability Living Allowance claims still get referred to in the original manner. As an existing claimant, you will be moved over to the new system in time, and the DWP should contact you to inform you of the time scale that this will need to happen. If you have any questions relating to the exact type of claim that you’re making do not hesitate to phone the team by using the DLA contact number listed here.

How to make a new claim for DLA?

You can contact the customer service team using the number on this page. Applying for DLA does require a lot of form filling, and you will need to make sure that you have all the relevant information that you need in order to make this application. Whereas there are online copies of the forms, some people still prefer to fill these in by hand, and it is imperative that you get the information on these forms correct.

Can I claim DLA on someone else's behalf?

Applying for DLA – or PIP – on someone else’s behalf is entirely possible, and this will make you their ‘appointee’ for the application. Making the call to do this is a difficult one, but sometimes it is essential if the person who would normally make the claim in unable to do so.

If you become the appointee for the claimant then you will be responsible for a number of things including; signing the claim documents and informing the benefits office of any changes made in the future. This responsibility can be a deeply personal decision and can be a difficult one for you to make. In this instance, it is best advised that you seek guidance from the customer service team on the DLA contact number. Pick up the phone and call them now.
