When should I set-up a Personal Injury Trust?

A person has 52 weeks to set-up a Personal Injury Trust from the date of receipt of the first payment they receive in respect of a personal injury. During this time, the money is disregarded. If, after 52 weeks however, their savings remain above the capital limits for means-testing and local authority funding, their entitlement will be affected and possibly stop altogether.

If a person deliberately disposes of money in order to maintain their entitlement to means-tested benefits or local authority funding, they may be in breach of the rules relating to deliberate deprivation of capital.
