The national welfare policy in Poland is the responsibility of the Ministry of Family and Social Policy, and the Social Security Institution (Zakład Ubezpieczeń Społecznych, ZUS) which acts as its executive agency. ZUS is responsible for collecting contributions and afterwards paying benefits to entitled persons.
One of the elements of the Polish social security system is a scheme of payments financed within the social insurance framework from the Social Insurance Fund (Fundusz Ubezpieczeń Społecznych). Their scope depends on the type of employment contract.
