The purpose of this article is a comparative analysis of the state and legal foundations of the formation and development of a social state in the Republic of Kazakhstan. For this, the author used general theoretical and specific scientific methods of investigation. As a result of the research, the authors affirm that it is impossible to achieve absolute social justice by a social state. At the same time, the task of the social state is the distribution of resources and benefits in such a way as to equalize the possible natural imbalance of economic benefits among different strata of the population through which to provide decent living conditions for each citizen and support the development of a market economy, in particular, by improving and expanding the production spheres, overcoming unemployment, increasing labour activity of citizens. Based on the analysis carried out by the authors, it was drawn the conclusion that the essence of the modern social state should not be manifested in the provision of targeted social benefits, subsidies and various social payments that in any case will not allow a person to live with dignity, but in creating the necessary conditions for the success of the state and all its members.
