This paper provides an overview of the resource-potential approach in the modern system of social security in Russia and examines its key development trends: the potential of the state to organize the social security work in accordance with the changing social conditions and needs of the population, development of mechanisms required to change social values and norms, enact legislation, build infrastructure, provide funding and human resources that correspond to the resource potential of the social security object (an individual, a social group, a community), inconsistencies in this process and techniques used to support the population in need.The results of the study confirm that the population protection system in Russia is built primarily on the principles of distribution, characterized by underdevelopment of social insurance mechanisms, as well as forms of self-sustainment of the population.One of the tools for alteration of the current situation in terms of resource-potential approach is a technology, which, on the one hand, increases the level of responsibility of state social security structures for creating the necessary conditions of economic, organizational, technological and social nature, among which financial assistance, consultations of specialists, education of family members, children's medical treatment, health improvement and rehabilitation, regular monitoring of the results of individual programs implementation are of particular importance.On the other hand, this technology promotes the increase in the degree of individual responsibility for a real change in the material and social status of the individuals and their families.
