What does being a personal assistant employer mean?
Choosing Option 1 means you can become a personal assistant employer.
There are responsibilities that come with employing a personal assistant:
You will be responsible for managing the money in your budget.
You will be responsible for paying wages to your personal assistant.
You will be responsible for making income tax and national insurance payments.
Income tax is money that is taken off a person's wages before it is given to them. This money is paid to the government.
National insurance is money that is taken off a person's wages before it is given to them. The money is paid towards benefits and a state pension.
Your social worker or care worker will support you when you are trying to employ a personal assistant. A local support organisation might also be able to help you with this.
They will support you to agree the care you need and look at the ways to make this happen.
They will support you to make sure all the right steps are put in place when you are trying to employ someone.
They will give you advice and training on what your responsibilities will be once you are employing a personal assistant.
Employing a personal assistant is a good experience for most people.
It is important to remember that employing someone has responsibilities too.
You should make sure you get the right information and support if you are not sure about something.
