The preferential treatment for senior citizens was implemented by the then Ministry of Health and Social Affairs in 1980 to promote welfare for senior citizens as part of its social welfare policy.

On May 8, 1980, the Ministry of Health and Welfare enacted and promulgated the preferential treatment for senior citizens, and the following year, the Welfare of the Elderly Act was enacted in 1981.

A typical preferential treatment system for senior citizens that has been in place so far is the free subway system. Older people living in urban areas benefit greatly from the free subway system.
