After you receive funding

If you get Fair Deal funding, you can request a review of your financial assessment.

You also need to tell us if your circumstances change.

Get a financial review

You can request another financial review 12 months after your last review.

But we can review the financial assessment at any stage if there has been a change in your circumstances.

Get a care needs review

If your care needs assessment finds you do not need long-term care, you can apply for a review.

You can do this 6 months after the assessment, or earlier if there has been a change in your health or circumstances.

Changes in circumstances

You must tell us if you or your partner’s circumstances change.

Changes in circumstances include:

  • the death of your partner or spouse
  • an increase in income for you or your partner or spouse
  • an increase in dividends from shares
  • any extra rental income or rental of your home or properties
  • the sale of an asset
  • the legal settlement or receipt of compensation
  • an increase in cash savings
  • an addition to relevant assets such as an inheritance or beneficiary in a Will
  • legal separation
  • your family successor is unable to meet the 3-year cap commitments

You can be fined if you do not inform your local nursing homes support office of changes in circumstances within 10 working days.
