Social security budget to reduce poverty

The government is planning to reduce the poverty rate through the use of social security budget policy as the main tool of fiscal policy, which plays a crucial role in increasing economic growth. To achieve this, the APBN has a distribution function, which consists of a series of policies to improve community welfare through fair distribution to marginalized communities. The social security budget for 2024 is expected 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 measures directed at preventing and dealing with risks from social shocks and vulnerabilities, which are implemented through social assistance, social advocacy, and legal assistance.
