Available Income Policy – Scotland
My contribution is currently over £83 what will I pay now?
If your current contribution is higher than £83 then you will now only pay a maximum of £83 per week towards your ILF funded care and support. ILF Scotland will pay the amount of the reduction on your behalf. Your overall level of award will remain unchanged, but your contribution will decrease and ILF Scotland’s will increase.
If the policy change happened on the 1st October 2018 will I be back paid the difference to cover the change in the level of the contribution being requested?
Yes, ILF Scotland will provide you with an additional amount of money to cover the difference between the amount of money you have been paying for your contribution and the new level of £83.
My contribution is currently less than £83 what will I pay now?
Your available income contribution will stay the same and will not change.
Someone else manages my finances for me will I need to tell them about this change?
Yes, if a payroll agency or someone else manages your finances for you you will need to tell them about this change.
