<Background and Purpose>

The defense reforms will give military civilians larger roles and responsibilities. Accordingly, they ought to be provided with better housing security.

   ◎ Military civilians are allowed to lease military housing when there is a vacancy according to the Directive for Military Housing Support Programs. However, they still have unstable access to housing because of a shortage of vacancies and various other limitations in the housing support programs.

   ◎ Unlike civil servants in the police and fire agency, military civilians are often assigned to remote and less populated areas where they have limited access to Government Employee Pension Service(GEPS) housing. They are also excluded from the base plans for defense welfare and housing surveys.

   ◎ As military civilians gain in number and importance, i.e. serving mandatory overnight duties, they are demanding a higher level of benefits and welfare, which are poor compared to their active-duty counterparts. 

   ◎ The national rotational assignments place a disproportionate socio-economic burden related to housing on the newly hired civilians serving in remote locations and married individuals who have to live separately. 

   

<Research Results>

The housing survey and census of military civilians indicated that there are varying needs for housing support across individual differences. Support should be prioritized for those who have the highest socio-economic vulnerability.

   ◎ Housing support for military civilians should improve their housing security and therefore their work efficiency. It should also reduce the living cost of newly hired civilians and others who have been assigned to a remote location in order to increase the retention rate.

   ◎ On the supply side, military housing programs should discard short-notice evictions and replace them with annual renewal of contracts. The military should also gradually include civilian requirements for military housing in remote locations, working to build additional capacities. 

   ◎ On the demand side, the study proposes providing rent subsidies to military civilians with a rent-to-income ratio of more than 20% and an income of 120% of the median income or lower. 

   ◎ Housing support should be prioritized for remote areas where the inherent difficulty of the job creates long-term job vacancies and low retention rates.
