Türk Sosyal Güvenlik Sisteminin Değerlendirilmesi ve Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumlarının Finansal Geleceği
[An Evaluation of Turkish Social Security Reform Process and Its Financial Future]
AbstractTurkish social security system has been developed under various social security institutions to provide social insurance against various social risks since 1945. Although the system has just 62 years history, it is in such situation that it is just able to provide its services with income support from general tax revenue. Thus, there has ben real efort of restructuring the system since the late 1990s. However, it is accepted that these restructured efforts possibly would not generate sufficinet revenue to provide its services in the long run, and deficit would be financed by treasury, which in turn, brings new burden on public finance. This study aims to: (1) determine fundamental long term issues of social insurance, (2) make long term financial projection of the three social security institutions under various assumptions while observing currrent reform efforts, (3) evaluate reform effort to see whether those efforts are sufficient to solve financial problems, and (4) develop additional solutions proposals.
