Abstract
Social relief is the lowest level of social security and has been the focus of successive dynasties since ancient times. Relief for the elderly and handicapped is an important embodiment of social legislation in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The ruler of Ming and Qing dynasties paid more attention to the relief of the elderly living alone and the disabled, tried their utmost to implement the "benevolent government" concept, set up a relatively perfect supervision system and set up social relief agencies to standardize the relief objects in law. In order to help orphans and the disabled, it is not only the ideological issue that the support for the lone elderly and the disabled cannot leave without the support of funds and the relief legal system. In the actual operation process, we also need to improve policies and regulations, integrate social resources and mobilize the enthusiasm of members of the society. As the rulers of the Ming and Qing Dynasties were not influenced by the traditional political system, they did not improve the effective protection of the legal system of relief and did not further integrate the social resources. Therefore, the implementation of the relief legal effect on the "old-age disabled" was not ideal. Summarizing the experiences and lessons of the legal system of social relief during the Ming and Qing Dynasties has important implications for the construction of our country's modern relief legal system.
