HRD Korea looking for 300 EPS members

HRD Korea EPS Center in Bangladesh is looking for 300 Bangladeshi EPS members to repay insurance money as these workers returned from the East Asian country without receiving it.

About 300 workers returned to Bangladesh without receiving their insurance money. The amount ranges from Tk 30,000 to Tk 300,000 per head. In this context, a list of workers has been published on the Facebook page of HRD Korea EPS Center in Bangladesh.

Anyone mentioned in the list can apply for the insurance money. If a person mentioned in the list is no more, his spouse or children can apply or if the person is single, his parents can apply with proper evidence.

Bangladeshi workers are going to South Korea under EPS system since 2008. So far 27,561 workers have gone to Korea. This year alone, 5,600 workers are going to the country.

Korean government regulations require all workers to be covered by insurance and bring the insurance money with them when they return from Korea, but some workers forget to bring the insurance money back.
