APBN aims to reduce poverty through social security

The government has a plan to decrease poverty through the social security budget policy allocation, which is a key instrument of fiscal policy, and has a significant impact on the economy's growth. To achieve this, the APBN has a distribution function, which consists of a number of policies, to improve community welfare through fair distribution to marginalized communities. The 2024 social security budget is predicted to be IDR 10.6 trillion.

Law No. 13/2011, certain marginalized groups have the right to receive social protection and services through social security and sustainable welfare conditions. In accordance with law No. 11/2009, the protection is classified as efforts directed at preventing and dealing with risks from social shocks and weaknesses, which are implemented through social assistance, social advocacy and legal assistance.
