Naturalized Koreans eligible for state maternity payments: Appellate ruling Updated: 2021-05-04 13:35:34 KST

A South Korean government agency has ruled that foreign-born people who give birth in Korea and acquire Korean citizenship after the fact are entitled to maternity payments from the government.
The decision came Tuesday from the Central Administrative Appeals Commission.
The case was filed by a woman who had been refused maternity benefits from the state because she became a Korean citizen after her child was born.
The appeals commission, though, reversed that decision, citing her new nationality, and the fact that she met the other requirements for the benefits, such as working and paying taxes.
This particular benefit is for people who are self-employed and don't have access to an employer-provided paternity leave.
