Reviews and changes to your circumstances
Please contact the FAB Team straight away if your financial circumstances change as this may affect how much you have to pay. You may have to pay backdated charges if you delay. We will reassess your financial circumstances to make sure you are paying the right amount.
We will also review your charges if you need a different type of care.
The Department for Work and Pensions increases state benefits in April in most years. We will reassess your contribution when this happens. We will write to you if your contribution changes. You can ask us to reassess your financial circumstances if you think your assessment is no longer accurate.
