Q: What is the difference between security and welfare ?
A: Security, outside of meaning protection, is mentioning money. Something like "social security" is money that a person gives their whole life when they work, and when they stop working, that money is there for them to live on. This is money they have given and are basically saving for later.
Welfare is money that was not earned by the person, but is given, by people or most commonly by the government. If a family is very poor, they put paperwork to the government asking for help. If they qualify(low enough income or disability and things like that), the government will grant them a certain amount of money every month. This is not money they need to pay back and comes from taxes the rest of the country pays for.

: the state of being protected or safe from harm
: things done to make people or places safe

safe·ty\ˈsāf-tē\
