The Ministry of Pensions was created in 1916 to handle the payment of the state pension. In 1944 a separate Ministry of National Insurance (initially titled the Ministry of Social Insurance, it changed its name on November 17, 1944) was formed; the two merged in 1953. In 1966 the Ministry was renamed the Ministry of Social Security, but this proved to be shortlived as the Ministry merged with the Ministry of Health in 1968 to form the Department of Health and Social Security.
