    • Abstract:
      The social work profession is rooted in combating poverty and the fight for human rights. Social welfare centers represent a key institution in that area, particularly the cash benefits departments in which social workers daily work with the poorest members of society. The system of social assistance benefits in Croatia includes the general and categorical social assistance programs. This paper is focused on general assistance programs, guaranteed minimum benefit and one-time allowance. The aforementioned rights are regulated by the Social Welfare Act which has been amended six times since 2011, thus bringing novelties to the area of realization of the right to general social assistance benefits. The paper presents the most important changes and provides an overview of their practical applicability. It also provides guidelines for improving efficiency of the two most important cash benefits with regard to the amount of the benefits and their targeting, efficiency with regard to beneficiary groups including children and retired persons and work activation of young persons (and) beneficiaries who are capable for work. Considering the crucial role of social workers in the deciding on the recognition of the right to benefits, special attention was paid to a critical overview the role of social workers n the cash benefits departments.

    • Abstract:
      Profesija socijalnog rada svoje temelje je izgradila na borbi protiv siromaštva i borbi za ljudska prava. Centri za socijalnu skrb predstavljaju ključnu instituciju u tom području, a specifično važnu ulogu nose odjeli novčanih naknada u kojima socijalnih radnici svakodnevno rade s najsiromašnijim članovima društva. U Hrvatskoj sustav novčanih naknada čine programi opće i kategorijalne pomoći. Ovaj rad posvećen je programima opće pomoći, zajamčenoj minimalnoj naknadi i jednokratnoj naknadi. Navedena prava uređena su Zakonom o socijalnoj skrbi koji je od 2011. godine prošao šest izmjena i time donosio novine i u području ostvarivanja naknada opće socijalne pomoći. U radu su prikazane najvažnije promjene te osvrt na njihovu praktičnu primjenjivost. Dane su i smjernice za unaprjeđenje učinkovitosti dviju najvažnijih novčanih naknada i to u pogledu visine naknada i njihove ciljanosti, učinkovitosti u pogledu korisničkih skupina djece i umirovljenika i radne aktivacije mladih (i) radno sposobnih korisnika novčanih naknada. S obzirom na ključnu ulogu socijalnih rad-nika u rješavanju priznavanju prava na novčane naknade, poseban prostor posvećen je kritičkom osvrtu na ulogu socijalnih radnika u odjelu novčanih naknada.
