DLA supersession over pension age

Hi All,

I know that we have been over this before, but just one point of clarification.

If a person receives DLA High Rate mobility but no Care can they request a supersession?

A client, who is significantly over pension age receives no care component. The condition that they were awarded DLA for affects their ability to settle and sleep at night and they say that it has deteriorated.

They have other conditions that affect their ability to carry out the activities outlined in DLA but these have developed since they were 65. These conditions also affect them day and night.

My question is can they apply for a supersession on the grounds of the pre-existing conditions, if there is a chance that they will get Middle or Higher?

Can they include conditions that have developed since they were 65?
