ArirangTV - December 9, 2014

In its latest report released on Friday, Korea's National Assembly Budget Office says the fund would be exhausted by the year 2053, seven years earlier than the government's forecast. The office says the pension fund will start paying out more than it's taking in by the year 2038 due to the country's aging population and low birthrate. The amount of money in the fund is forecast to reach its peak in 2023.
