Private transfers are not negligible factors in developing countries. Rather, private transfers can play a major role in social welfare and income distribution, working as quasi social fund. In this paper, motives for private transfers in Vietnam are investigated in two aspects; whether parents provide transfers to children from altruism or exchange purposes, and whether private transfers crowd out public transfers in later stages of the life of recipients. As a result, private transfers and transitory income in lower income groups have a significantly negative relationship in rural areas, which implies a safety net function that private transfers may contain.
