Good Practices in Social Security Good Practices in Social Security

The identification and sharing of good practices helps social security organizations and institutions to improve their operational and administrative efficiency.

In the context of the ISSA, a good practice is defined as any type of experience (e.g. an action, a measure, a process, a programme, a project, or a technology) implemented within a social security organization that fosters the improvement of its administrative and operational capacities, and/or the efficient and effective delivery of programmes. The good practices selected by the ISSA focus on topics related to the priorities as defined in the programme and budget of the Association. The good practices are from member institutions of the ISSA and are primarily collected through the work of the  ISSA Technical Commissions and the ISSA Good Practice Awards.

Protection of the livelihood of workers with unpaid wages through wage-claim guarantee

The Korea Workers’ Compensation & Welfare Service (COMWEL) administers the following system as a strong shield for the protection of claims for wages of workers:

  • The wage for the last three months and for the last three years of retirement funds shall be protected and given the highest priority over other securities, taxes, and utility bills.
  • COMWEL provides standard substitute wage within the scope of wages and severance pay with the highest priority right on behalf of the employer for the protection of the livelihood of retired workers who failed to receive wages due to the bankruptcy of the business site.

COMWEL operates the new small substitute wage program to protect the previously unprotected retirees with unpaid wages from currently operating business.
