The author describes the applicable regulations regarding the social insurance of authors and artists. The article also assesses the direction of changes proposed in the draft law on the status of professional artist. As discussed the solutions in the field of social security for authors and artists require swift intervention by the legislator. At the same time, the proposals for solutions contained in the project are not consistent with the assumptions of the current social security system and may negatively affect the entire system in this form, leading to its greater disintegration. The proposed solutions can be improved with the involvement of experts into the field of social security system.
