The Bihar government has initiated various social security pension schemes for the welfare of the old-aged persons, widows, and bonded labourers. Rajya Samajik Suraksha Pension Yojana means social security pension scheme in Bihar. It aims to provide financial assistance to the citizens living in Bihar through pensions.

As Rajya Samajik Suraksha Pension Yojana is a social security measure, the various schemes will ensure that the vulnerable groups are not left in poverty and live a life of dignity.
