Japanese Pension Refunds

Japan Pension Refunds icon

Employees in Japan are required to pay a contribution into a pension insurance fund out of their wages. Contributions are usually 11% of your salary, depending on whether you are paying into the Government's National Pension Scheme or your employer has a private social insurance plan. If you're a foreigner working in Japan, you can apply for a pension refund once you leave the country. You are entitled to a pension refund from Japan if:

  • You're not a Japanese citizen
  • You paid national pension insurance for more than six months
  • You left Japan permanently less than two years ago

You can also reclaim the 20% tax charged on the Lump-sum withdraw. When the social insurance office (Japanese Pension Service) reimburses your pension payments, it deducts 20% income tax on the refunded amount. Once you receive your refund, we can claim that tax back as well.

The average Japanese Pension Refund is ¥600000

If you’ve worked in Japan, then you’ve had money put into the Government’s National Pension Scheme for you by your employer. The good news is that when you leave Japan, you’re entitled to claim it back. Customers who claim back their Japanese Pension refund payments with us get back an average of ¥600000, so it’s well worth checking how much you could get back. Many people don’t realise they can claim back their pension contributions, but we’re here to tell you, you can! Get started today.

    The personal communications from your agents made all the difference in my choice to use TaxBack. Overwhelmed with what should have been a simple process due to an error going back several years in my taxes, I gave up doing them myself and handed it over to TaxBack. I was assured all 3 years would be fixed and my refunds recieved. Once I handed over my paperwork I never had to ask about updates or remind my agent to do anything - they were so on top of it and made it so easy! Matthew Lloyd was especially helpful and I can't thank him enough for his continued clear communications and patient explanations which saved me so much time!
