Introduction: social security is one of the most important elements of the social policy of the state. Many legal acts are adopted in the social security field. In order to ensure the uniform understanding and interpretation of the content of the normative legal acts in the social security field, their systematization as well as the practical application in the law enforcement process the regional legislators have codified the social security legislation in a number of subjects of the Russian Federation. Using the methods of scientific knowledge, especially the method of system analysis, it is found that the complexity of the problem involves the use of both the law-making and law-realization directions and forms of the legal adaptation of the current legislation of the state. The aim of the study is to conduct a comparative analysis of the social codes adopted in the subjects of the Russian Federation, to identify common approaches in the implementation of the law-making activities for the codification of the social security legislation. The system analysis of the law-making process on the codification of the social security legislation in the subjects of the Russian Federation allowed establishing that the adopted codes had significant differences in structure and content. However, having quite significant differences, the codes have a common property – each of them has one common characteristic – a special part of all adopted social codes is built on a categorical principle. Results: on the basis of the analysis some problems of the law-making activity of the regional legislators on the codification of the social legislation are revealed. Conclusions: 1) it is necessary to adopt a number of federal laws: a codified federal law defining the goals and objectives of the social legislation of the Russian Federation and the subjects of the Russian Federation, the federal law on the sources of law, on the delimitation of powers in law-making between the Russian Federation and its subjects; 2) to establish common principles for the country’s implementation of social security; 3) to develop a single conceptual framework that provides a single legal regime for regulating relations in the social security sphere; 4) to develop a model regional social code as a model for the regional legislators.

Key words: social security, codification, social code of the RF subjects, social support, forms of social assistance, categories of recipients of social safety net.
