      5 The term ‘tone’ is a term for the social acceptability of the mode of administration of benefits, just as the cash level is evaluated in terms of adequacy for a specified level of living. See J. Veit-Wilson, ‘Consensual Approaches to Poverty Lines and Social Security’, Journal of Social File Size: KB. Social Security and improve benefit adequacy for vulnerable elders. This working paper is based on the chapter “Economic Status of the Aged,” in the Handbook of Aging and the Social Sciences by R.H. Binstock and L. George (eds.), 7th Edition (Oxford: Elsevier, ).

      Social Security plays a crucial role in reducing poverty The federal government defines “poverty” as income below specific amounts that the Bureau of the Census establishes. These thresholds, known as federal poverty levels (FPL), are adjusted annually for inflation and vary according to family size and the age of the head of the family. But under the principle of adequacy, the Social Security benefit formula overlooks years of low earnings (for example, when a worker may have been disabled or unemployed), and it replaces a higher proportion of earnings for the poor than for the rich.

        Without their Social Security income, percent of seniors would have been poor in , the Census Bureau reports; with Social Security, their poverty rate under the SPM is percent. (While these figures use the SPM, Social Security also has a strong effect on the official poverty measure because it provides cash assistance.).   The principal problematic issue in all poverty measures is the source and status of the standards of needs and deprivation. Rejection of minimum subsistence or quasi-absolute approaches to defining poverty, and acceptance of the social relativism of poverty, logically demand that the indicators of deprivation equally be derived from the society in question and not be prescribed for it by Cited by:

Examines the extent and social distribution of poverty, as well as the impact of social security on poverty. The study uses data from household panel surveys in seven countries and regions in the EC, including some of the poorer ones, such as Ireland, Catalonia and Greece.

Social protection systems traditionally serve a dual purpose: to maintain acquired living standards in the event of social risks and to combat poverty by guaranteeing adequate minimum incomes. More recently, these goals – which are basically instances of damage compensation – have been complemented with a third objective, namely to foster ‘active inclusion’ as a means of preventing or Author: Bea Cantillon.

Abstract. This paper presents comparative results on poverty and social security in seven countries and regions of the European Community (E.C.).

The poverty line reflects any calculations about the money required for subsistence living, including housing, food and other necessities.
