Basing on the results of implementation of a system of structural pensions in Poland's agriculture in 2004-2005 the authoress analyses the structural, social, welfare and political functions of that instrument. She points to the relatively weak influence of that instrument on changes in the acreage structure of farms, which can be attributed to the fact that most farms are transferred to successors, and also to social consequences in the form of widening inactivity of the rural community, to over-representation of welfare functions and their political consequences.
