It all depends on whether you have a free account or a premium account. Premium accounts have higher populations and lots more corporation to support more things like a higher social security index, health index and education index. So those accounts will be able to support a higher welfare index. Free accounts have more restrictions on profits due to their limited population. As a free member, I average around 120-125 in my welfare index. People with premium accounts would have to share their opinions on this.

It does not matter if you are a free member or a paying member. My tip. Either go for 125+ or do not look at it at all. Welfare requires a significant investment of resources. If you are building a low tech low wage country you earn a little bit less per game month but you do not need to invest nearly as much.

Welfare is the main index in this game, but but you should not go for maxing it first. It worth doing when country already is in good shape

Free vs Premium doesn't effect welfare index. A high welfare index is better than a low one. However, countries with high wages will benefit more from having a high welfare index. Since Welfare Index and Wages interact to increase Corporation productivity, you need both high corporation wages, and high welfare index, to see the full benefit.

If you want to know how to increase welfare index, the documention provides the answer...

"The Welfare Index is the lowest value of several other indexes:

The Health Index
The Education Index
The Transportation Index
The Supply Index + 41
The Employment Index + 37
The Social Security Index + 38
The Government Salary Index + 27
The Consumption Index contributes between 0 and 8 point to the welfare index. It needs to be at a level of about 300, to reach the max effect."

Note that the 0-8 from the consumption index is subtracted from the welfare index. So if your consumption index is lower than 300, then your welfare index will be between 1-8 points lower than the chart indicates.

Additionally, since the employment index can't go above 100, the highest possible Welfare index would be 137, (employment index plus 37). However, even with a low unemployment rate, you are unlikely to get your employment index above 96 long term. So the maximum realistically achievable welfare index is roughly 133.
