OH his just gone into permanent care. He will be self funding for 12-18 moths, unless a trust of which he is a beneficiary pays out. However, that depends on someone dying and the vast array of solicitors who seem to be involved! Although the someone is 101! He has always been the one with the regular income so all the regular DDs are from his account. I now think it is time to move them to my account. However, my money is going to be severely compromised. I was wondering if I could take or use half his private pension to pay those bills? When his care is from the LA I will get that amount, I understand, even when he dies I will still get half. However, I don't want to upset the LA applecart at all. But without the money, I will have to dig into my own savings. Many thanks!
