As an important part of the rural pension system, cultural pension is an important way for the rural elderly to meet their spiritual and cultural needs and enhance their sense of well-being and access. However, at present, the development level of China's rural elderly cultural pension is low, and it is difficult to meet the needs of the vast number of rural elderly. The study found that the difficulties faced by the rural elderly cultural pension mainly include: the government has less investment in the construction of rural cultural pension, the function of rural family cultural pension is weakened, the service mechanism of rural cultural pension is not perfect, the infrastructure of rural cultural construction is weak, and the supply of rural community cultural pension is lack.
