Deferred payment agreements

Learn what a deferred payment agreement is and how to arrange an assessment.

A deferred payment agreement is an arrangement with the council that will enable some people to use the value of their homes to pay for their care. If you are eligible, we will help to pay the care home bills on your behalf. You can delay repaying us until you choose to sell your home, or until after your death. 

To arrange an assessment please contact Customer First. The quickest way to do this is to press the chat with us button on the right hand side of your screen.

More information about paying for care and services can be found on our care and community directory, Suffolk InfoLink: Paying for care and services on Suffolk InfoLink.
