Background: Social security is a feature of psychosocial science which is necessary for people in order to have a healthy life and continue their social relations. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relation between social security and general health of students.   Methods: This was a cross-sectional study. The sample included 284 students aged 18 to 45 years from the School of Public Health who voluntary participated in the study. In order to collect the data, Social Security and the General Health (GHQ-28) questionnaires were used. Descriptive analyses, t-test, ANOVA and Pearson’s correlation coefficient, were performed to analyze the data.   Results: There was a significant and direct relationship between social security and general health (r=0.231, p<0.001). Also there were significant associations between social security and, older age (P=0.002), male gender (P=0.002), more income (P=0.001), field of study (P=0.031), and type of residing home (P=0.022).   Conclusion: Seems like social security is low in people with worse general health, younger age, women, and low income. More research is needed to determine the reason of less social security in students of specific fields. It is also proposed that more research be conducted on the probable factors related to social security.
