    In this paper we propose to investigate the social security policy effectiveness. For the assessment we take into consideration a sample of 27 countries (EU27) for an observation time span between 2005 and 2010. Inequality and poverty are taken as criteria for analysis. As related indicators we consider the GINI coefficient for inequality and disposable income below 60% of the national average for poverty. As tools of analysis we propose the use of matrixes that reflects both the static and the dynamic perspective of the existing situation. At the European Union level the matrixes of analysis reveals a heterogeneous situation.
