The implementation of a new system of financing of social services establishes the conditions for the finding of the optimal form of the securing of human needs in an unfavorable social situation, which should contribute to the increasing of the effectiveness of the spent funds. The goal of this paper is to analyze some myths and mistakes that directly influence the effectiveness of this system of the social protection of the population. In this sense, attention is paid especially to: (1) an analysis of the results of grant proceedings, which are regulated by § 101 of law no. 108/2006 Coll., on social services, as amended, (2) an analysis of some of the findings on the manner of using the contribution for care for the securing of the need of care for oneself, (3) the implications of an aging population on the need of services for elderly citizens, in connection with the change of the system of social services financing.
