The provision of cost of living is the most basic. Medical expenses and care should be provided when a dependent becomes ill. Housing for the elderly should be properly arranged. The elderly must not be forced to move to houses with poor conditions. The housing owned or undertaken by the elderly, children or other relatives shall not occupy it, and shall not change the property right relationship or lease relationship without authorization. The caregiver has the obligation to maintain the homes owned by the elderly. The caretaker has the obligation to cultivate the land contracted by the elderly, take care of the forests and livestock of the elderly, and the proceeds belong to the elderly. The supporter shall not refuse to perform the maintenance obligation on the basis of giving up the right of inheritance or other reasons. Dependants shall not require older persons to perform work beyond their reach. The spouse of the dependent shall assist the dependent in performing his maintenance obligations.
Parents need solace to overcome loneliness when they reach old age. Spiritual support is a more important maintenance obligation after the socio-economic development. Because material conditions will increase with socio-economic development, the state and society can provide more material security for the elderly , and many parents do not rely on their children to provide material assistance, so material support will weaken. The daily food assistance can also be solved by the social service guarantee system. Only children s respect, care, consideration, and comfort for their parents cannot be resolved by other means. The obligation to care for the elderly is even more important.
Article 13 of China s Inheritance Law stipulates: The share of inheritance by inheritors in the same order should generally be equal. Heirs who have special difficulties in living and who lack the ability to work should be taken care of when assigning inheritance . They have done their best to the heirs Heirs who have the obligation to support or live with the heirs may share more when allocating inheritance. Heirs who have the ability to support and have the conditions to support, if they do not fulfill their obligations to support, shall not be divided or divided when allocating the estate.
At the same time, Article 30 of the Opinions of the Supreme People s Court on the Implementation of Certain Issues of the [Inheritance Law] states: Anyone who provides the main economic source for the life of the heirs or provides major assistance in labor and other aspects shall be determined Therefore, respect for the elderly is not only a traditional virtue of our Chinese nation, but the law encourages every citizen to pay more attention and care to the elderly, to show more filial piety, and to fulfill the primary support obligation or The heirs who live with the heirs may share more of the inheritance. For heirs who have no filial piety and the obligation to support them, they shall not share or inherit less.
