Financial assessments for carers

Not everyone will be eligible to have care or support paid for by their local authority. Eligibility is determined through a financial assessment of the person receiving the care or support. 


Carers' assessments

Anyone who cares for a person with dementia is also entitled to an assessment of their own needs as a carer. This page includes information about getting a carer's assessment in Wales and what to expect and what to do in preparation for the assessment.


Benefit cap

If you’re aged 16 to 64, there may be a limit on the total amount of benefit income you can get. This is called a benefit cap.
