Elder Law, Trusts / Asset Planning
The underlying purpose of the Social Securities Act 1964 is to ensure that financial support is available to people who require it. The availability of this support is subject to means testing, and the Act requires that "where appropriate they should use resources available to them before seeking financial support under this Act". These resources may include assets held in trust.
