Advising on later life matters

Our dedicated Later Life team understand that the exact needs of each individual are specific to them. Chris or Carolyn will listen to the situation you or your family member is in, then work with you to find the right solution(s) at what we know can sometimes be a difficult and emotional time for you and your family.

Our advisers have the knowledge and expertise to provide advice and guidance on:

  • How to plan your finances to optimise the use of the available financial resources to pay for care for as long as possible
  • How to navigate available care funding allowances and make sure you or your loved one receives appropriate allowances
  • How assets can be used to pay for care and structured to assist in leaving an inheritance
  • Inheritance tax worries and how these can be tackled
  • Releasing capital locked in to property to help pay for care or other later life needs, including Local Authority Deferred Payment Arrangements, which are a form of equity release
