Towards a new organisational structure for the provision of social security:Samenvatting in het engels. The large demand for social security provisions in The Netherlands can partly be ascribed to the complicated and fragmentedorganisational structure for the payments of benefits and the public employment offices. This article discusses a blueprint for a more comprehensiveorganisation, where in each region one office has both the responsibility for the payment of benefits and for public employment provision. The regionaloffices obtain their budget from the government and are allowed to supplement these budgets with the proceeds of work done by recipients of benefits.The incentives for the regional offices to (re)employ as many recipients of benefits as possible may lead to a decrease in the demand for socialsecurity and hence enhance labour participation in The Netherlands.
