A social insurance scheme for farmers' accidents in Korea should be established as an independent institution from the existing industrial accident insurance, and it comes to complementary relationships with other social insurance system. A general rule of the compensation system is that it should apply to all farmers in principle but the coverage would be limited for part-time farmers. The financial burden would be borne by insurance premiums and state aid together. The type and level of benefits would be similar to current industrial accident insurance, which gives priority to economic security for maintaining farm works, such as costs for using temporary farmers, rather than income loss. The compensation system might be managed and administered by a nationwide organization.
