Abstract: Filial piety and pension are the inherent appeal of the rank and file at all the dynasties in Chinese history. During the ancient Yao and Shun periods, the tradition of respecting the elderly was formed. In the period of Han dynasty, the policy of " domination of Confucianism " was rewarded and respected and the idea of " ruling the nation by the filial piety " was promoted. The emperor implemented this policy of filial piety and pension in the fields of ideology, politics, economy, education and law, which helped to establish a systematic and relatively complete system of it. In politics and ideology, the idea of filial piety and pension has been promoted to a national ideology and political system, which was constructed as a core education system; In economy, the idea has been raised as social security measures; meanwhile, the implementation of it has been promoted in the form of state laws.The Han Dynasty’s policy of filial piety and pension laid the foundation for the outstanding traditional virtue of Chinese culture; the support measures laid a solid foundation for the construction of the pension system in feudal society in China. The policy has rich historical value and can provide historical reference for the settlement of filial piety and pension in today’s society.
