ABSTRACT

This study investigates the issues in relation to the introduction of the fund-based Korean occupational pension, examining the development plans in the members’ perspective. The strong drive from Korean government to introduce the fund-based governance seems to be a sort of strategy to expand coverage in occupational pension. It is not logical that the introduction of the fund-based scheme is likely to cause increase in earning rate and, what is more important is to set the conditions to implement the active investment decision. Also, because the introduction of the fund-based scheme may increase possibility of insolvency, it is necessary to strengthen beneficiary protection or funding rule but, in the short term, it is better to focus on funding rule rather than protection scheme. The introduction of the fund-based scheme suggests the direction that members can actively participate in occupational pension, which means that it is possible to operate occupational pension in the direction of intent of the system.
