Hi all,
Sorry - I know this has been answered many times but I can’t find the threads.
Mam lives alone, gets pension credit, attendance allowance, state pension and 2 private pensions. If she goes into care home as self funding, which of these stops and which is she allowed to keep please???
Thanks

As long as she is self funding the AA will continue - possibly higher rate. She may also qualify for Funded Nursing Care. I don't know about the pension credit.

If self funding she definitely keeps everything except for the pension credit which she may or may not keep or it may be reduced. Rules are complex, you will have to ask the DWP.
