A unique way to help fund care home fees without having to sell your home.

How the Care Plan Payment Option works
The Care Plan Payment Option enables you to secure a loan against your property to buy a Partnership Immediate or Deferred Care Plan.
This means the payment of your care home fees can start as soon as it is needed without having to wait for cash to become available through the sale of your property. It also means that your property is retained, should you return home, perhaps as a result of improvements in your health.
The amount you can borrow is based on your life expectancy, a valuation of your property and your age.
Paying for the Care Plan Payment Option
Should you die before repaying the loan, the outstanding loan balance owed will need to be paid, usually from the sale of your property.
If your property is sold for more than the outstanding loan balance, the difference will be paid to your estate, once sales costs have been deducted.
If your property is sold for less than the outstanding loan balance, you will not have to make up the shortfall as the loan will be protected by the 'No Negative Equity Guarantee'. This means that the repayment amount (including accrued interest and charges) will never be greater than the sale proceeds - no matter what happens to house prices.
