On entering a care home and receiving 'full continuing care' allowance,what becomes of my state pension, is it stopped or reduced?
Here is link to the Directgov governmental website which covers the topic in detail - Care homes and benefits.
The important part is the section on State Pensions which states:
'Moving into a home will not affect your State Pension but it will be counted as income when your contribution to your fees is assessed'.
I hope that helps and good luck
