What if I am married?
If you are married or living with someone as a couple, we will only assess your financial resources. However, there are times, when one person is receiving a benefit on behalf of both members of the couple and we will need to ask for the details.
If both of you are to receive care, we will assess your finances individually to work out how much you will have to contribute towards the cost of your own care.
In some circumstances, it is beneficial to ask to be financially assessed as a couple.
