Abstract
Korea was entering the condition of Aged Society after becoming an aging society in 2000. Now Korea is one of the youngest countries but will be the second oldest one that will have about 38% of its elders over 65 by 2050 following Japan with 39%, due to rapid population aging. There have been more abundant discussions about social welfare extension during the last presidential election. The present administration promised the extension of welfare services ? most pledges of President Park were related to universal and free welfare service including child-care, health-care, and old-age pension. However, the most fundamental problem is that the Korean government does not have sufficient financial resources to fulfill these pledges.
