This study makes a general analysis and review on the problems incurred from introducing a graded payment system, as well as the supplementary payment system, for the Livelihood Protection Program, and seeks appropriate and concrete implementation plans.
The payment system of the Livelihood Protection Program in Korea utilizes a uniform and fixed method. This is appropriate when the level of minimum living expenses, income of beneficiaries, and assets are similar. However, in reality, the introduction of a supplementary payment system is necessary. For this, the supplementary payment decision model was proposed to determine detailed introduction plans in consideration of minimum living expenses, assets, and special expenses for each household by studying the basic principles and models of the supplementary payment system.
In order to find payment alternatives by understanding the recognition of minimum living expenses and assets, problems of class division, and advantages and disadvantages of cash and allowance in kind were studied. In calculating the asset recognition of each household, the scope of assets, integration of income and assets, and work incentive were taken into consideration, along with labor income, agricultural income and business income. Additionally, for special expenses, the differences in minimum living expenses were included by gender, age and state of health. In deciding the methods of payment, cash payment and allowance in kind were compared. The determination of payment methods was influenced by political, economic, and social factors as well as implementation factors. In dividing classes to determine the scope of payments for minimum living expenses, phase-by-phase division was applied to include early effects of introduction.
In conclusion, the study showed that the allowance in kind payment method is desirable in providing medical expenses due to medical knowledge, external effects, and living goods egalitarianism. Otherwise, the cash payment method is desirable.
