Summary/Abstract: The term "social protection" is a broad concept that refers to a combination of cash benefits and other social protection services that have a common goal to help people who are facing different types of social needs. Cash benefits can be paid individually on the basis of insurance, such as retirement pension, or at the discretionary allocation according to a particular need or asset check. States have systems of social protection that differ significantly from one another, depending on political, cultural, economic and social factors.
