Insured Unit and Insured Persons

A member of the farmer association as referred to in Article 12 of the Farmer Association Act who is engaged in agricultural work and has not received the old-aged benefits of other related social insurances may join in the Farmers’ Health Insurance program as an insured person, and the basic-level farmer association to which he belongs to shall be the insured establishment.

If a farmer over 15 years old who is not a member of farmer association as referred to in the preceding paragraph, and engaged in agricultural work and has not received the old-aged benefits of other related social insurances may join in this Insurance program as an insured person, the basic-level farmer association in the household registration shall act as the insured establishment.

The voluntary enrollment in the Farmer Occupational Insurance was implemented on a trial basis starting from November 1, 2018, and its coverage was expanded starting from August 7, 2019. Individuals who are classified as category 3 insured persons under the National Health Insurance program and engage in farming but are not eligible to enroll in the Farmer Insurance may enroll in the Farmer Occupational Insurance on a voluntary basis. Eligible applicants include foreign spouses or individuals who have already received the old-age benefits of related social insurance programs. The applicants, including foreign spouses, must visit the local-level farmer association at the place of their household registration to apply for the enrollment in the Farmer Occupational Insurance. Individuals who though not eligible for the Farmer Insurance, and are not qualified as category 3 insured persons under the National Health Insurance program, but possess the expertise for agricultural production, and are involved in regional agricultural production, may apply to join the Farmer Occupational Injury Insurance starting from May 1, 2021.
