Abstract
This study examines the risks of unfunded pension liabilities on the Korean stock market, through the relationship between pension funding level and future stock returns. If the reserve balance for benefits is below a required minimum level at any fiscal year end, employers should compensate for it in the following three years, which directly affects internal cash resources and firm value. The result shows that the lower the pension funding level, the higher the stock return rate on the Korean stock market. Additionally, I find that this result can derive from firm characteristics such as size and distress risk, rather than a new risk factor.
