Financial Assessment

The Financial Assessment looks at your income and assets in order to work out what your contribution to care will be. The HSE will then pay the balance of your cost of care.

For example, if the cost of your care was €1,000 and your weekly contribution was €300, the HSE will pay the weekly balance of €700.

This payment by the HSE is called State Support.
The Financial Assessment looks at all of your income and assets.


Income and assets

Income includes any earnings, pension income, social welfare benefits/ allowances, rental income, income from holding an office or directorship, income from fees, commissions, dividends or interest, or any income which you have deprived yourself of in the 5 years leading up to your application.

Broadly speaking, an asset is any material property or wealth, including property or wealth outside of the State. If you are a member of a couple, the assessment will be based on half of the couple's combined income and assets.

For example, if a couple's income was €600 per week, the assessment of the person needing care would be based on 50% of €600, or €300.

In other words, the person needing care would be considered to have a total income of €300 per week. A couple is defined as (a) a married couple who are living together
or (b) a heterosexual or same sex couple who are cohabiting as life partners for at least three years. The assessment will not take into account the income of other relatives such as your children.
