Korea has already become an 'ageing society' in 2000 with the percentage of old people over 65 reaching 7.6%.
Korea is ageing at a rapid speed unprecedented in any other country in the world. Korea is expected to become an 'aged society' in 2019, and yet again a 'super aged society' in 2026.
OECD advised that the best way for a society to tackle the ageing problem is to reform the retirement system.
This study focuses on the Korean civil service compulsory retirement system and suggests alternatives to meet the needs of an ageing society.
This research is made up of three parts. First, the author explores the civil service retirement system in various countries. She reviews the systems in many regions including North-America, Europe and Asia.
Second, a questionnaire survey is conducted to investigate the opinions of civil servants and civilians. Stratified sampling is used to select 360 civil servants and 150 civilians. The respondents' views on the current civil service retirement system are analysed.
Third, the related issues concerned with compulsory retirement system reform are explored and possible reform measures are suggested. The research does not aim to propose just one alternative but to show a broad spectrum of changes that can be implemented to improve the current system. The author ultimately presents five alternatives, altogether with their pros and cons, to provide for an ageing society.
