The question of who should assume responsibility for the financial aid of senior citizens has long been a debatable topic. While some argue that it is the government’s duty, others advocate that older adults should be accountable for their retirement. I think both governments and individuals have a role to play in financially supporting retirees.


On the one hand, governments should provide financial assistance for older people because they are unable to support themselves. The intervention includes pension schemes, healthcare benefits, and other social welfare programs, helping people have a comfortable and dignified life later. For instance, in developed countries, governments provide a monthly pension to all retirees, regardless of their previous income level, to meet their basic needs.


On the other hand, individuals should also be in charge of their own post-employment savings. While the authorities can offer some fiscal backing, it cannot be solely relied upon to provide financial security during retirement. Thus, aged people are better off saving and investing in retirement funds early in their working life. Doing so can help them be proactive when facing uncertainties in their later life. Governments also benefit from that decision and have a more abundant budget for other priorities.


In conclusion, I firmly believe that both governments and individuals should shoulder responsibility for the monetary assistance of older people. Governments should only provide social welfare programs to ensure a basic standard of living for the elderly, while individuals should also make economic plans to secure their own retirement funds. That approach not only assists old citizens to have a more prosperous future but also lightens governments’ load on the financial burden.
