Romania has a well-established social security system. In order to provide its citizens with decent living conditions, the Romanian government provides various social security schemes in close association with private institutions. The Romanian pension system is divided into three pillars - the first is a mandatory public pension system, which functions as a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) system. Privately administered pension fund schemes form the second pillar and voluntary occupational pension schemes form the third pillar. The public social protection institutions run different schemes at both central and local levels of administration. At the central level of management, the ministries and the national agencies are responsible for providing protection to individuals in the form of benefits such as sickness and health, maternity, old-age, accidents at work and occupational diseases, family and child benefits, unemployment and invalidity benefits. At a local level of management, based on the social solidarity and social inclusion principles, the officers of the mayor and the county’s general executives are responsible for providing social assistance and child protection cover.
