This paper reviewed and addresses China’s social welfare system from historic prospects. In previous six decades, China’s social welfare experienced great changes, and Chinese people’s living standard was improved, but the uncertainties of life in the rapidly changing social and economic realities in a changing society still create a need for the comfort and stability of the social security system.
