Abstract: The aim of the article is to examine the changes in social protection expenditures of the European Union member states. The analysed countries are divided into two groups. The first group comprises Western European states which did not belong to Eastern Bloc and became members of the Union until 1995. The second group are Eastern European states which belonged to Eastern Bloc and became members of the Union in 2004. The analysis spans the years 2004-2012. The paper presents the changes in amounts of social protection expenditures (calculated as a share in GDP) among the EU-25 group as well as the differences in structure of these expenditures among the EU-15 countries and those accepted into the European Union in 2004.
