The goal of this research lies in valuing social security rights for children by estimating Korean government\'s financial status on child welfare. According to the South Korean Government\'s the consolidated 3rd and 4th periodic report to UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the financial budget concerning child welfare is growing every year. However, most of the budget falls under category of caring children who critically needs systemized protection. One can say as of now, a distribution of the budget does not meet the needs of more universal child care and its policies. Secondly, the budget for child welfare in Korea has multiplied by 9.3 times from 9,933,000,000 WON of year 1987, to 92,802,00,000 WON of year 2008. The annual increase rate has risen by 23.5%. However, the average percentage of the child welfare budget in the Gross Domestic Product(GDP) has always been 0.01%; it is a status quo for two whole decades of 1987-2008. One can conclude that it is not easy to secure the social rights of the child in terms of the national budget for child welfare in Korea. The South Korean Government mainly depends on the policy of social assistance as a guaranteed income program, highly passive on the idea of national income guarantee for children. Systematic amendments are required to secure the social rights of children.
