    Från socialbidrag till äldreförsörjningsstöd.: En reform ur äldre invandrares perspektiv.2008Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2003 the Swedish parliament decided to incorporate maintenance

    support for the elderly within the framework of the state social insurance

    system. Maintenance support for the elderly entails that individuals who,

    due to too short a period of residence in Sweden, do not qualify themselves

    for a full guarantee pension and thus have the right to receive

    benefits after completion of an income test. A large proportion of these

    people previously received individually incometested social benefits.

    Maintenance support for the elderly and how it is perceived by the elderly

    is the focus of the study. The overall aim of the study is to gain

    knowledge about what it means for immigrants who moved in later life

    to be the subject of a transfer from a selective benefit system to one

    where more general principles apply. More specifically the aim concerns

    what it means for their possibilities for gaining access to social rights and

    what it means for their relationship with the Swedish welfare state. The

    study’s empirical material consists of two parts. The first part contains

    register data from the social services register of the National Board of

    Health and Social Welfare and the social insurance register of the Swedish

    Social Insurance Board. The second consists of interviews with

    eleven foreign-born elderly persons who previously received social

    benefits and now receive maintenance support for the elderly. The

    analysis of the register data indicates that one-fifth of the target group

    actually includes people born in Sweden while the rest are immigrants

    arriving in Sweden in later life. For most of those in this latter group the

    maintenance support is their only source of financial support while it is a

    supplement for the Swedish-born elderly recipients. The results show

    that of those, who previously received social benefits and where the

    maintenance support is their only source of financial support, about onefifth

    received a smaller amount of benefit after the reform. The interview

    study indicates the existence of a gap between what the respondents

    express as needs of more individual considerations both in terms of the

    contact with the administrating authority and the maintenance support’s

    monetary content and how the elderly perceive that these needs are provided

    for. In order to try to understand this gap the result was analysed

    by using a number of major theoretical concepts such as universalism,

    stigma and shame, and social citizenship, public identity and recognition.

    The conclusions of the study is that a comprehension of the gap can be

    found in the standardised design and administration of the maintenance

    support and in the socio-economic context that immigrants coming to

    Sweden in later life find themselves in.
