This study was designed to analyze descriptive elements of low income citizens receiving supplemental income social security benefit assistances. In this study, 890 male and female subjects living in Seo-San city area in Choong-Nam Provinces were investigates about their basic socioeconomic status such as income, job, education, health status, and family backgrounds. Overall, more than half the benefit receivers were composed of single one family households and their school education was not accomplished at all. In addition, their status of handicapped physical condition may cause them higher medical cost, which will result in higher insurance cost and other medical care cost. In these days, the support consciousness by young generation is decreasing. Also the affluent aged tend to live separately from children. But most of the elderly do not have financial plans after retirement. Yet, the eight year old pension program does not exert a favorable influence on life of the retired aged. Therefore the decreasing proportion of support by young generation accelerates the poverty rate for the elderly. The long-term direction of social services for the Korean elderly welfare requires at first the conversion of consciousness on social joint liability. It means that societies should offer proper welfare programs and services to the elderly as a fare reward to their contributions to families and societies, and also offer solutions to age problems considering that industrial societies disadvantaged their later life. Overall in this study, we suggest that in order to provide safer later life quality, institutionalized special education programs and career management program should be established.
