Paying for residential care

Reviews and changes to your circumstances

Your financial assessment will be reviewed every April to take account of any increases to state benefits you receive and any changes to your financial situation.

If at any time there is a change in your financial situation, you should let us know and we will carry out another financial assessment.

Some of the changes you should tell us about

  • A rise or fall in your savings and investments
  • A change to your benefit payments or pension payments
  • You start to get a new type of income, or an existing type of income stops
  • You sell your property
  • A spouse, partner or family member living in your property moves out or passes away
