Pension For a Foreign Worker

A foreign worker who is 20 years old or above is also required to enroll in a pension plan in Japan. If a pension member returns to his/her home country prior to becoming eligible to receive retirement pension payments in Japan, he/she may be eligible to receive a lump sum payment by applying for it within two years of returning home as long as a certain set of conditions are met. However, once a lump sum payment is received, if the home country has a social security agreement with Japan, it would then be deemed that the recipient was not a member of the Japanese pension plan for the applicable membership period for the purpose of calculating the pension accrual period in the home country.
