Benefits & Entitlements

Seeking information and advice may appear complex at first, but there are several forms of entitlements and benefits available although these will vary according to your or your loved one’s individual needs.

When looking at financial provision options, in the first instance, we would encourage you or a loved one to contact the relevant local authority or primary care trust to discuss financing personal care needs.

What are my options?

Remember to consider all care funding options available, including non means tested and means tested funding options, the first of which will be based on your or your loved one’s overall capital (income/savings/pensions), the second will not. Here are a few options to consider:


Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
Attendance Allowance
Carers Allowance
Direct Payments
Continuing Care
Care Fee Payment Plans
Independent Living Funds
