Even after retirement in 4050, it costs 170 million won per child.

The Korea Insurance Development Institute explained that if a child in their 40s to 50s someday retires, they will need 170 million won per child.

Children at retirement 22% Unemployed 35% Single
Education expenses 6989 million won and marriage expenses 100 million won
Average assets 400 million units, severance pay 9466 million won

Those in their 40s and 50s own a large portion of their assets as real estate, so they may have difficulty in preparing cash after retirement, the Korea Insurance Development Institute analyzed.

On the 11th, the Korea Insurance Development Institute published the ‘2020 KIDI Retirement Market Report’ containing these details. The report contained the results of a survey conducted on 700 people in their 30s to 50s nationwide in 2019. Two out of three survey participants (62.6%) said they would feel the burden of supporting their children someday after retirement. Compared to the same survey conducted in 2017, the response rate increased by 6 percentage points.

Estimated amount of child marriage expenses after retirement

They estimate that even after retirement, they need an average of 6989 million won per person for their children’s education and 11.94 million won per person for their children’s marriage expenses. The more children there are, the more money will be spent on them after retirement. According to the National Pension Service’s retirement guarantee panel survey, at the time of retirement, 22% of children were unemployed and 35% were unmarried.

If the average lifetime income of an annual recipient is 1 million won, it means that the money received from the national pension was only 213,000 won.
