In the article the authoress is trying to answer the question whether social transfers in Poland go to the poorest households and those, who need them most. Using recent data for Poland, form European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions, she analyses the distribution of the sum of social transfers (divided by different types of transfers) into income deciles. She also compares the information about receiving certain types of transfers with information about some other aspects of life situation of the members of analyzed households. It comes out that significant part of different social transfers goes to relatively rich households, and some of them (housing allowances, disability benefits and social exclusion transfers) seem to reach not only those, that really need them most.
