Abstract
On the basis of the modernization theory of aging, this paper argues that the causal factors for the diminishing status of the elderly and consequent aging problems are basically societal rather than individual or familial. It then examines the present state of problems of elderly Koreans, analyzes existing social welfare provisions for the elderly and some problems in current policies. From these diagnoses, it emphasizes the role and the shared responsibility of the state to initiate an efficient and encompassing solution for the elderly problem, which will pave the desirable way for the Korean welfare state.
