The DIF Bond Redemption Fund is funded from the following sources.
Special assessments are the contributions mandated by law that insured financial institutions are required to pay for 25 years from 2003 to 2027 in accordance with the Public Fund Redemption Plan to repay the public fund assistance they received for financial restructuring. Insured financial institutions should annually pay to the KDIC the amount of money obtained by multiplying the balance of their deposits, etc. (in the case of insurance companies, the amount of money determined by the Presidential Decree in consideration of the liability reserves under Article 120 of the Insurance Business Act) by such rate as determined by the Presidential Decree within the limit of 3/1,000 (If the amount is less than KRW 100,000, they should pay KRW 100,000 instead.)

The Deposit Insurance Fund Bond Redemption Fund is preferentially invested in bonds, such as government/public bonds within the scope where stability, profitability, and liquidity are guaranteed. The purchased bonds, in principle, are held until maturity. To maintain the stability of the funds, investment in performance-based products, with no principal guarantee, is prohibited, while investment in MMF beneficiary certificates of investment pools for public funds is allowed.
There are pre-determined percentages for investment in each of the above categories - bonds, MMF beneficiary certificates of investment pools for public funds and deposits. However, the percentages can be adjusted to a certain degree so that the funds are managed flexibly to cope with unexpected market conditions.
