If you have to pay your own care fees you must act quickly to retain financial independence and peace of mind. One of the first steps in protecting your assets is to find out whether the care provider you prefer is affordable. In most cases normal income is not sufficient to pay care fees and so savings are required to plug the gap. If there is a shortfall in income you can use your capital wisely, potentially benefitting from guaranteed tax free income for the rest of your life with an Immediate Care Plan.
This Shortfall Calculator will help you see if there is a shortfall between your income and the cost of care. It is simple to use and will highlight your personal shortfall figure. Once you have established your shortfall figure give our Free Advice Line a call on 0800 6528232 and speak to one of our Independent Care Fees Specialists to see whether an Immediate Care Plan could solve your care funding problem.
