Care Fees AdviceCare Means Test - Income

If your capital assets are between the upper capital limits and lower capital limits, you will be subject to a tariff income assessment (care means test) to determine what contribution, if any, the local authority will pay towards care fees costs.

For each £250 capital between the upper and lower limit, you are deemed to have a tariff income of £1 per week.

For example, if you have capital of £3,000 above your areas lower capital limit, you will be deemed to have a tariff income of £12 per week

This will be added to your other income to determine the assessment (care means test) and contribution for your care by the local authority.
