Financial assessments take place to gather the financial and personal details necessary to work out how much you need to contribute towards any social care charges.
During a financial assessment, we look at your income, including the pensions and any benefits you receive and any other assets you may own, to work out if you need to contribute towards the cost of your care.
At the same time, you are offered a welfare benefits check to make sure you are receiving all the money you are entitled to. You can check this yourself using this online Benefits Calculator (opens in a new window).
For more detailed information take a look at the page on the Doncaster Council Website (opens in a new window).
