Capital threshold

The Government sets the level of savings that determines if you can get help with your care fees. This is called the ‘Capital Threshold’, and it is currently £23,250.

If you have more than this amount in capital and savings you cannot get any help with care fees from us. This means that you will have to pay the full amount of fees yourself until your savings fall to £23,250.

We advise all residents to take independent financial advice, as there may be several different ways of paying for care.
