Aims: Today, pension funds have a key role in providing living expenses and improving the level of social welfare of the elderly. This study aimed to investigate the status of insurance coverage and support for the elderly in the Iranian provinces using developmental indicators and investigate the level of providing insurance and pension for the elderly in the provinces based on the level of development in infrastructure and technical, economic, production, cultural and social dimensions. 
Instrument & Methods: The research method is a secondary analysis, which examines the status of insurance and supports pension coverage for the elderly in Iran and compares it with provincial development indicators in infrastructure and technical, economic and production, and cultural and social areas.
Findings: Kohkiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province ranked first in providing insurance coverage and pension support for the elderly. Kohkiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad had 28th, 20th, and 8th ranks in development, infrastructure and technology, and economic and production indicators. Sistan-Baluchestan and Lorestan provinces had the second and thirsty ranks in insurance coverage and pension support for the elderly. The ranks of Sistan & Baluchestan in terms of infrastructure and technical, economic and production, and cultural and social indicators were 26, 26, and 9, respectively. The ranks of Lorestan in terms of infrastructure and technical, economic and production, and cultural and social indicators were 24, 19, and 30, respectively.
Conclusion: There are many differences between the provinces of Iran in terms of pension coverage, insurance, and support according to development indicators. Lack of access to social services and support is an obstacle to economic and social development. The distribution of development resources in the provinces does not follow a unique pattern, and the provinces' situations are different. Therefore, development in the country's spatial structure cannot be expected to be uniform.
