Winter 2019/20 | THE Derbeian ADVERTISING FEATURE HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVED ONES IN LATER LIFE More and more people are facing a financial dilemma as they grow older. Many people would like to make monetary gifts to provide immediate benefit to loved ones as soon as possible. But there is a growing fear that money could run out, leaving them unable to maintain a standard of living later in life, especially if long-term care is required. The cost of care can vary considerably across the country, and will be dependent upon the type of care and level of support you will require. This will often be determined through a care needs assessment. However, with the average annual cost of residential care around £31,200, rising to over £43,732 for nursing care (LaingBuisson, Care of Older People UK Market Report, December 2017), the spectre of having to sell a property to meet care costs looms large for many. Even if people choose to remain in their own homes and receive care there, the cost is significant. And, on top of all this, there is the threat of Inheritance Tax (IHT), which can have a serious impact on people’s estates. IHT used to be the preserve of the very wealthy, but escalating property values in the last ten years have put paid to that, with more and more people affected every year. In April 2019, the residence nil-rate band rose to £150,000, for those who qualify, and is due to increase to £175,000 in 2020. Coupled with the fact that the first £325,000 of an individual’s estate is exempt from IHT, this will mean that, subject to certain conditions, a married couple and civil partners could have a combined tax-free estate worth £950,000, a figure that will rise to the million-pound mark in 2020/21. However, there are other financial implications to consider, particularly if you are a widow, widower or divorcee. Individuals often do not take the time to understand the impact that care fees or IHT could have on their wealth. Many people are confused by IHT policy and many mistakenly believe they are unlikely to be affected by this or the need for care in later life. This lack of preparation could have serious consequences later in life. The good news is that there are solutions to help safeguard your wealth in later life. Understanding what you can gift to love ones now, or place in trust for later, can give you access to the income you need today and also help to mitigate any future exposure. Something as simple as ensuring your Will is up to date could reduce the risk of your estate being severely reduced through IHT and the high cost of long-term care. PEOPLE SHOULD CONSIDER THE BIGGER PICTURE WHEN PLANNING FOR LATER LIFE. More detailed planning advice will always need to consider your personal circumstances. The best action anyone concerned about these issues can take is to seek professional advice and establish how you can protect your hard-earned assets.
