    DLA is paid four weekly, not monthly, so you should get four times your weekly amount. Are you sure you're on middle rate Care, rather than lower rate Care and lower rate Mobility?

    Check your annual uprating letter for details of what you should be receiving. If you've lost it, call the DLA helpline.

    What you get equates to LRC and LRM.
    £168 ~ 4 = £42 per week
    LRC = £21 per week
    LRM = £21 per week
    Total £42 per week
