除了保障个人的一生,西德的福利体制不重在资源的再分配
Explanation:
The last part of the sentence "other than across the lifecycle" is problematic. The first part is easy. However, I think that I have captured the essence of the text's meaning.

I am a social security expert and can clafiry what I mean in more detail if you wish. Please email me to seek more information.
