The management structure of the GEPS consists of three parts: The Ministry of Personnel Management (MPM) in charge of supervision; the Government Employees Pension Service which oversees administration; and Government agencies which assist with pension services.
As the shown in the figure below, the MPM takes charge of the GEPS and supervises the activities of the GEP Service. There are three committees related to the GEPS under the control of the MPM.
The Government Employees Pension Service is responsible for overall management of the GEPS such as collecting contributions, providing pension benefits and the other employee benefits as well as fundraising. There is a committee concerning the GEPS administration under the control of the GEP Service. The board of directors is responsible for the overall policy decisions of the business regarding pension administration.
The GEP Service can manage its activities effectively with the help of government agencies from central and local governments. They collect contributions belonging to their agencies before transferring to the GEP Service and provide pension-related information of individuals of the agency where they belong. There are 1,595 agencies which have been chosen to assist the GEP Service closely.
