The objective of this report was to suggest a reformation plan for the Seoul Basic Livelihood Security Scheme (SBLS), specifically its criteria of rules of family support obligation. SBLS operates with the National Basic Livelihood Security (NBLS) Scheme. SBLS offers cash benefits for the less-income family lives in Seoul who do not qualify for NBLS scheme, so they have no access to the extra welfare support. Since the NBLS scheme has been reformed its criteria of rules of family support obligation this year, it is inevitable to Seoul city to restructure the qualifying criteria of the SBLS.
This report suggest a large range of options to amend the criteria of rules of family support obligation of SBLS. We considered three types of model: a model, which do not obligate family support rule for the vulnerable social group, a model, which ease the strictness of entitlement qualification for supporting family, and a model which abolish family support obligation rule for SBLS recipients. When it comes to abolish rules of family support obligation, our estimation presents additional 6.9 billion won spending per year.
