Care Thresholds Frozen for 14th Consecutive Year

The capital limits governing access to care in England in 2024-25 will remain unchanged acceding to the Department of Health and Social Care’s annual charging circular.


This means people with assets worth more than £23,250 will continue having to fully fund their care.


Anyone with assets worth less than £14,250 will not have to contribute to their care from these, though they will be required to make use of their income as a contribution towards their care. Those with savings between the two figures must contribute up to £36 per week to their care from these assets.
