The government has pledged £2bn extra for social care and confirmed a Green Paper on social care funding will be published later on this year.
The budget revealed an additional £2bn funding would be made available to social care in England over the next three years, with £1bn made available in 2017/18 alone.
Chancellor Phillip Hammond said this would be in addition to £7bn the government was planning to put into the social care system over the next three years and that options for future funding "do not include, and never have included, a death tax".
The Green Paper on social care will be the latest major review into social care funding since the Dilnot Commission's report published in July 2011, which led to the implementation of a cap on social care costs.
Previous governments had introduced the "Royal Commission on long-term care for the elderly" in March 1999 and the Wanless review: "Securing good care for older people" in March 2006.
Hammond also said the reforms were "not just about money" as he pledged greater support for local authorities and the NHS.
He added: "While there are many excellent examples of best practice around the country, at the other end of the scale, just 24 local authorities are responsible for over half of all delayed discharges to social care.
"So, alongside additional funding, the Health and Communities Secretaries will announce measures to identify and support authorities which are struggling, and to ensure more joined up working with the NHS. These measures, and greater collaborative working under NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plans, will bring short and medium-term benefits."
In addition, Hammond said the challenges of sustainably funding care required a "strategic approach."
He referenced Labour's discussions in 2010 to place a 10% levy on estates to help fund social care - a so-called 'death-tax', adding: "For the avoidance of doubt, Mr Deputy Speaker, those options do not include, and never have included, a Death Tax."
Royal London director of policy Steve Webb said it was time to end decades of "dithering" over social care.
"We have had twenty years of reviews and commissions. What was needed was political courage to implement a system which protects all families from potentially huge care costs and stimulates a market in care insurance for those who want greater security.
"The Government should commit now to implement the Dilnot proposals without further delay."
