Private welfare insurance and social security

Tania Burchardt, John Hills

Where the boundaries are drawn between collectively financed social security and individually financed private provision affects the lives of everyone and the allocation of a large fraction of the national income.

Tania Burchardt and John Hills use three case studies - insurance against care costs in old age, income replacement during long-term sickness or disability, and cover for mortgage payments if earnings are interrupted - to examine the potential effects of shifts from public to private provision.
