Care account

An account created by the local authority from April 2020 (postponed from 2016) to monitor the costs of an individual’s care and support needs, whether the local authority pays for their care and support services or they are self-funders. Once the amount spent reaches the cap on care costs, the local authority will then take over paying for the services for which the adult has been assessed as requiring.
