This article analyses the basic ideas of social state development and problems of their integration. A social state is the constitutional order basis, and its real embodiment is to some extent the duty of the state. No modern civilized state can function without a developed social sphere, which creates conditions for people’s well-being, stability, maintaining public peace and community partnership. These problems were also raised in the Russian President's Message to the Federal Assembly on April 21, 2021: "people preservation, family protection, strengthening social guarantees, and economy, education and culture development". The constitutional principle of the welfare state is implemented through social functions. Particular attention is paid to the problems of availability of education and decent work in Russia. The social functions being performed by the state directly determine the quality and level of social state orientation development. This type of state activity is carried out within the framework of domestic social policy, which is necessary to maintain a certain living standard. Moreover, if we proceed from the goal of the welfare state as articulated in Article 7 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, we talk about a dignified life of every person and guarantees especially for those who are not able to realize their capabilities. The social functions of the state, such as social protection and social security, accessible education, health care, a certain set of social benefits and services, decent working conditions and commensurate wages, shall contribute to the achievement of this goal.
