An Social Protection Floor consists of four nationally defined basic social security guarantees that members should establish by law, and—in accordance with their existing international obligations—provide to all residents and children.
A national SPF should comprise the following four social security guarantees:
Access to a nationally defined set of goods and services constituting essential health care—including maternity care—which meets the criteria of availability, accessibility, acceptability, and quality.
Basic income security for children at a nationally defined minimum level, which provides access to nutrition, education, care, and any other necessary goods and services.
Basic income security at a nationally defined minimum level, for persons in active age who are unable to earn sufficient income, particularly in cases of sickness, unemployment, maternity, and disability.
Basic income security at a nationally defined minimum level, for older persons.
