Financial assessment for adoptive parents and carers
The council is required to carry out an annual financial assessment for all adoptive parents and carers currently receiving allowances.
You will have received a letter from us, telling you that your annual assessment is now due.
How to complete your annual assessment
Download the relevant form below and return it to Post Order Assessments, Revenues and Benefits Service, Cunard Buildings, Liverpool L3 1AH.
- Adoptive parents financial assessment form.
- Carers financial assessment form (special guardianship, child arrangement and residence orders).
You will need to provide details of your income and outgoings. You must also include supporting documentation where required. Photocopies are acceptable - please do not send original documents.
You have a legal responsibility to inform us of any changes to your finances or household or if you move address, as it could affect your entitlement.
What happens next
We'll send you a letter to let you know of any changes to your allowance payments and when these will take effect. This is normally 28 days from the date of the letter.
If you wish to appeal the decision you can do so in writing within 28 days of receiving the decision letter by emailing email@example.com or write to Children's Services Social Care Complaints Manager, Municipal Buildings, Dale Street, L2 2DH.
