Income security system for the disabled in Korea faces the new stage this year with the introduction of Disability Pension Act; the system divides into Disability Pension, non-contributing pension, and Invalidity Pension of National Pension Scheme, which is social pension. In addition, there is Permanent Disability Benefit of Workers Compensation Insurance, which applies to the disability due to work injury.
Disability Pension Act improves the income security system for the disabled by providing pension to the disabled people who live slightly above the poverty line, but was excluded in the National Basic Income Security scheme since it does not consider the disability in selecting the beneficiary. It is also expected that Disability Pension contribute to building up the income security system by providing the basic disability pension to the disabled who is not covered by National Pension due to inborn disability or not satisfying the conditions of the scheme.
