This paper conducted a quantitative assessment based on a simulation analysis of what impact the reformed Korean National Pension Act on July 2007 could bring on its sustainability, equity, and adequacy, and then it inquires into policy implications for further development of the system.

But, at the same time, challenges that require additional security from efficiency and equity perspectives still remain. In this regard, this paper suggests future policy agendas for resolution as follows: First, setting up a clear target for financial stabilization, and gradual increase of contribution rate; Second, curbing pressure from increasing contribution rate through improvement on pension fund management system and its profitability; (The rest omitted)
