ABI responds to Care Bill

In response to the Care Bill published today

Steve Gay, Director of Life Savings & Protection, ABI comments:

"We support the Care Bill’s objectives of improving and simplifying the social care system into a single framework, and introducing the recommendations of the Dilnot report on care funding. The Bill is a major step forward in the development of a social care system fit for the future, and we look forward to working with Government on how the new model can be implemented. This must include how people can be given appropriate and regulated financial advice to support their decisions.

"We also need a national campaign to raise awareness of the State’s offer and that people need to plan for their care needs. This needs to be considered alongside the Bill to help us move towards a more financially resilient society."
