Concurrence of the rights to care benefitsand social security benefits —de lege ferenda comments

Subject and Keywords:

The text deals with the issue of the concurrence of care benefits and social security benefits regulated in the Act on Family Benefits. Such a situation occurs when a person who already has the right to a social insurance benefit, e.g. a retirement pension, acquires the right to one of the care benefits, e.g. an attendance benefit. The regulations included in the Act on Family Benefits are discussed against the background of the general principles according to which a particular type of risk can be protected with only one benefit and social insurance benefits take precedence over care benefits. According to the author’s opinion, the solutions adopted by the legislator are unadjusted to the current situation and are increasingly provoking controversy in practice and, consequently, in the author’s opinion, require changes. The lack of action on the part of the legislator causes courts to play its role, which should not occur in a properly functioning legal system based on the rule of the tripartite division of power.
