Summary
Italy’s social security system is based on the constitution of 1947, and plays an important role in providing social security benefits to Italians. State and private benefits which are prominent in Italy cover most of the population. All workers performing gainful activity in the Italian territory are compulsorily covered by social security insurance. Contributions to the social security system are made by employees, employers and through general taxes. Life expectancy in Italy has increased over the last three decades, resulting in a rise in the elderly population. Due to the recent debt crisis in Europe, government spending on pensions has become a financial burden. In response, several reforms have been made to ensure a better social welfare system for future generations.
