Would someone be able to clarify the situation regarding self funding full time residential care and pensions, both state and private? The dreaded time has come for my father to go into care and I am sorting his finances out to meet the cost of his care. So the question is, as he will be self funding, would his private pensions be affected and do I need to contact the pension companies and notify them of the change of circumstances. The same question applies for the DWP as well I guess. Any guidance and clarification would be sincerely appreciated.
