    Hi Hanka ,

    Here are the definitions of national and social insurance.

    National Insurance :
    It isbased on contributions from employers and employees; provides payments to unemployed and sick and retired people as well as medical services.

    Social Insurance :
    Government provision for unemployed or injured or aged; financed by contributions from employers and employees as well as by government revenue

    Basically National Insurance is a kind of Social insurance.
