Based on the Chinese General Social Survey (CGSS) 2015 and the ordered logit regression analysis, this study empirically estimates the happiness effect of the social security participation in urban and rural China. The results are as follows: (1) Social security participation has a significant impact on improving the subjective sense of happiness of the residents, the more the benefits they enjoy, the happier they feel. (2) The happiness effect of the social security participation on rural households is greater than that of the urban households, and the former can get more enjoyment from the social security system. (3) The happiness impact of the medical insurance participation is greater than that of the endowment insurance, and the relationship between the endowment insurance participation and the residents' happiness is not significant. Overall, the relationship between the social security participation and the happiness of urban and rural residents can provide a reference for the construction of the social security system in contemporary China.
