The elderly live with the money they have saved.
By the way, Koreans usually join the national pension
(Forced collection in the country.)
Over 65, money comes in every month.
However, with the exception of civil servants,
Elders who can not collect the money can live hard.

we have superannuation, technically it doesn't come out of your paycheck the employer pays it into an investment fund of your choice on top of your wage and you can access it once you retire or for specific things like buying a house

At the cost of welfare. Half the elderly in South Korea suffer poverty and some even live on prostitution. Can you imagine 80 year old whores?

>Poverty afflicts almost half of Korea’s elderly — a generation that was once the lifeblood of the country’s remarkable postwar transformation into an advanced economy. With the basic monthly state pension of Won200,000 barely sufficient for food and lodging, many resort to menial or degrading jobs to make ends meet.
>Some even resort to prostitution. In a leafy park nestled beneath the high-rises of downtown Seoul, women as old as 80 seek clients to take to the neighbourhood’s rundown motels. The “Bacchus Ladies”, named after the energy drink they flog as an opening gambit, have come to symbolise the profound demographic challenges facing the rapidly ageing Asian nation.
>“The sole reason they do this kind of work is to eke out a living,” says Lee Ho-sun, a professor at Korea Soongsil Cyber University and an authority on the sex workers — none of whom was willing to talk to the Financial Times. “These women feel disgraced and scorned doing this job in their old age. It causes them a lot of physical pain.”

Most Korean elderly live with their children.
they do not go to the nursing home like the West.
And Japan has a high rate of aging.
Japan is poorer than Korea.

>>92092229
I doubt whether this statistic is really true.

how japan is poorer than us. it can't yet

Actually, that's the problem. As you suggest, Korea's welfare policy has heavily relied on people's Confucian values and the concept of filial piety where children, not the government, should take care of old parents. IRL however Korea isn't exception to the nuclear family thing; and now less and less younger generations are opting for living with parents, and as a result more and more old people are becoming isolated. The policy worked somewhat because:
1) Korea barely became a developed country, in which people can enjoy an individualistic and hedonistic lifestyle, in the early 21st century, so it wasn't so prevalent
2) Korea's birthrates were quite high until the 80s, meaning that the elderly so far have a lot of children some of which might take care of them
3) as an emerging country, its demographic was/is better (way fewer older population) than conventional developed countries
in other words, South Korea didn't have to take account of old people's welfare so much. The situation is changing pretty rapidly though.

Also, you gotta realize the stat is based on PPP. Did you really believe Koreans earn more than, say, Americans?

>Japan is poorer than Korea.
Ahahahahahaha. You are comparing a country poised to economically take over the world, the third largest economy and the biggest net creditor with its colony developed and aided by it. Japan is in a different league from Korea, and Korea has many countries to overcome before even challenging Japan.

japan is only rich because america distributed 50% of asia's investment to japan because japan is completely dominated by america and will do whatever america says. south korea is already united by the north now and has nukes. japan is just america's slave kek lel

Nobody except low IQ JETfags actually think that.
