If the rheumatoid arthritis is bad enough to cause substantial difficulties they might be
entitled to disability allowance.
there are two rates; one to assist with daily care and one to assist with mobility. Earning are not taken into account and working people can apply for one or both.
The mobility allowance can be exchanged for a car
[mod]#4
If they are working then why would/should they be entitled to a car?
#5
anyone who is entitled to higher rate mobility DLA is entitled to exchange their money for payments towards a car. Its not a free car, merely a way of purchasing a new car at extortionate prices, but often the only way a disabled person can get credit.

What would you rather have...

1. Genuine disability which hinders your chance of progression in life.
2. No diability. You are able to work and what whatever job you like.

Yes, it is as simple as that.


Thanks mate for being helpful

it is very hard to get the high rate mobility, as you are still able to work you might only get the low rate for mobility as in its hard to get around but you can as you go to work. the best thing to do is apply but get some help to do so as the paperwork is very tedious, speak to your doctor who diagnosed you and ask for his support as that will help you as well. even if you dont qualify for the high rate its still worth applying as you could also apply for the blue badge as with R/A not having to walk half a mile to get to supermarket ect is a good help

hey heartless
maybe i can get a car


I'm not sure how you think your comments are in anyway answering the question posted - if you have nothing to offer apart from sarcasm, digs etc then best not to bother with this thread anymore.
If you have some advice to give then by all means post but hijacking this thread is not big and not clever

I've got authritis too I'm only 16 nearly 17, I've had it for about 10-15 years and the hospital only just figured out what it was, typical nhs, I tried to claim for dla about 6 months ago as the doctor said they would allow me to have a car, I waited 3 months then they said I can't have anything because I can eat my own meals! Omg man it's perthetic, there's too many people frauding that's what the problem is :(

My neice has arthritis, she was diagnosed at 2, and is now 8. Its not nice for anyone, but a little girl?
#21
I have a mate who says has been diagnosed with MS and she tried to get DLA for a car but she works nearly full time, walks her dogs 4 miles a day and has a hubby who claims benefits for her as well and gets her rent paid.
Now is claiming vets fees from PDSA and has just told me is buying a dog for £350 in 2 weeks but will get insurance for it!!!!
Making me mad now as I lent them money which was meant to be paid back last week but said they couldn't afford it so I went without over Xmas and now found out she got paid £150 and used it to pay for dog.........................
I am off sick but am self employed and have savings so don't get any help at all and think she is taking mickey out of system now..................
