In this study the agricultural social security system was analysed in terms of adequacy of the premiums paid by farmers against the demographic transitions, taking place in agriculture. The analyses were based on the World Bank’s model, used for estimating the security systems costs. The focus of this study is on the changing proportions between the insured and the beneficiaries, resulting from changes in the size of labour force and population ageing. The analysis of data has revealed that one of the causes behind low receipts from premiums, and thus high state subsidies granted to farmers, stems from the unfavourable proportions between the insured and the beneficiaries in the Agricultural Social Insurance Fund (KRUS). The resultant indicators of the current demographic changes reveal that the premium paid by farmers should be higher than it is now.
