Additional Benefits

  • Home leave ticket

    GSG's benefits package includes a home leave ticket after the completion of the first year of employment. The home leave ticket provides economy class transportation for the GS, spouse, and any dependents to visit family in the GS's or spouse's home town. After the GS' contract is complete, employees are eligible for home leave tickets in each subsequent year.

  • Completion payment

    All members of GSG are entitled to additional compensation for successful completion of the employment contract. For each full year of employment, employees will be entitled to an amount equal to one month's salary. Upon leaving Korea, all funds will be disbursed to the employee.

  • Pension payment

    As employees in South Korea, all GS are automatically enrolled in the national pension scheme. A small amount (~$200) of the GS's monthly salary is deposited in the government pension program, with Samsung matching 100% of this contribution. Upon leaving Korea, employees can withdrawal all of the funds (both individual and corporate contributions) along with accumulated interest.

    * Receipt of pension payment is subject to mutual agreement between South Korea and employee's home country.
