Pensions and Insurance
●Military Insurance and Pensions - to protect the rights and interests of military members and strengthens their morale
The military pension system was established in 1926, and the Army Administration of Pension and Benefits Section was established in 1928. To protect the rights and interests of officers and soldiers and their dependents, the military insurance system was established in 1950. The system has thus existed for over 90 years, during which the relevant regulations of the system have been revised for several times due to social changes, making this important system an even more complete tool to invigorate the military morale and consolidate the combat power of the troops.
Insurance coverage of the "Act of Insurance for Military Personnel" includes death, disability and retirement of military personnel. Such insurance benefits have increased the integrity of the military security system.
●Group Life Accident Insurance for Military Personnel
Group Life Accident Insurance has been enacted since 1998. If officers and soldiers in active service suffer from accidental casualties, the maximum insurance payment is NTD3.5 million per person. Moreover, the insured amounts for officers and soldiers involved in high-risk missions such as airfreight, submarine and ammunition, are increased, with the maximum insurance policy proceeds up to NTD10 million per person.
