Thanks

It might well have been indefinite but they have a policy of reviewing all indefinite DLA claims.

That doesn't mean that it will be removed from you. They are just asking you to sign a declaration to the effect that nothing has changed and they may send you for a medical to confirm your condition. However, if it exists and there are no problems then they will not remove your DLA.

This is not anything about you per se or your claim. Its just the Government's new policy of conducting more regular checks.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
