Ensuring equal rights and opportunities in modern society allows us to ensure its development without involving additional regulatory functions of the state. In this regard, it is relevant to determine the limits of discrimination, to isolate them from personal rights and to identify potential state regulation in this area. The authors of the article consider the issue not only as the basis for building mandatory functions in the field of social security, but also as a tool for the uniform distribution of so-cial security factors. For this, an analysis was performed, which uses the mecha-nism of the initial analysis of equality and on this basis the limits that require legis-lative consolidation are determined for the use of restrictive mechanisms. The arti-cle discusses the definition of equality and, accordingly, the restriction of rights in the generic concept and highlights the foundations of regulation and the restriction of inequality at the level of fundamental documents of the state. Social protection is presented as a component of a developed society that can provide its members with basic needs, starting with material basic benefits and ending with the ability to freely achieve well-being. The authors also consider compensation mechanisms. Practical significance is determined by the fact that mechanisms for ensuring equal opportunities are identified and principles for regulating the sufficiency of social security are formed for citizens who experience discriminatory influence both from the state and from individual citizens.
