Among the total 2,513,000 persons who registered their disabilities, there are 117,000 persons (4.7%) with internal organ impairment, which occupies the smallest portion among the entire registered disabled persons. The reason that the number of persons with internal organ impairments is relatively small is because of the intricacy of the criteria for grading and procedure for registration. In results, persons with internal organ impairments have not sufficiently taken advantage of the benefits from government and others comparing with persons with other types of disabilities. Therefore, this study aimed to. understand the actual condition and problems of disability registration procedure and the criteria for grading and to make suggestions; to increase the number of registered persons with internal organ impairments and to provide them with benefits and services of government, (1) the disability registration procedure needs to be simplified, (2) the disability grading system needs to be modified and the re-evaluation, and (3) the expansion of the category of disability.
