NPS was established in 1988 to manage the nation's mandatory, universal public pension scheme. To date, NPS has covered almost 20 million persons who are insured by their employers, individually, voluntarily.
Now NPS has grown to become the fourth largest pension fund in the world, with reserves of more than US$280 billion.
In addition, NPS has adopted as a core responsibility the evaluation of eligibility for public disability assistance, in accordance with the Assessment of Disability Degrees and Personal Assistance for Persons with Disabilities.
We welcome the opportunity to share our experience with you, the representatives of other nations' social security institutions, and to exchange opinions about the ways in which we might improve our respective pension schemes. As such, we would be happy to host you at our offices in Korea. Similarly, we would enjoy the opportunity to visit your home offices.
Should you wish to visit our offices, please inform us via email, telephone or fax. We look forward to meeting you soon.
