A pilot project for the sickness and sickness allowance system, which compensates the minimum income for workers when they take a break from work due to difficult economic activities due to an unrelated injury or disease, will start today (4th).

The pilot project target areas are Jongno, Seoul, Bucheon, Gyeonggi, Pohang, Gyeongbuk, Cheonan, Chungnam, Changwon, Gyeongnam, and Suncheon, Jeonnam. %, you can receive 43,960 won per day.

However, you cannot receive support for cosmetic surgery, simple complaints of symptoms, or childbirth-related treatment that does not cause complications.

The Ministry of Health and Welfare will conduct a phased pilot project for the next three years and then promote the introduction of this system in 2025.
