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.

    I was notified of a tax refund and what I had to do to receive it. This only took a few minutes to complete and I was notified I'd be paid within a few days. I'm glad this was all sorted out because I had mixed messages about this refund saying I wasn't entitled then another message to say I was. This was the best news of all. A very speedy process and I'm thrilled.

    This was very easy to understand and fast process. It was great whenever I didn't understand something or had an issue, I could chat to an agent at any time and the issue would be resolved fast.

    I am grateful that Taxback team was very responsive and kind during the whole process which took more than a year. They explained me everything in detail and finally I received my taxes. Team is great and I recommend this service for every foreigner who does not know how to receive their taxes on their own.

    Awesome experience from the very beginning till the end.. I left New Zealand 3 years ago and didn't even know that I still be able to claim my tax back from that time till I stumbled across one of their ads on Google.. So I just gave it a try and it couldn't have been any better.. Even I didn't had any Payslips or even a Copy of my Visa anymore, they got everything sorted for me in less than a month.. Very responsive with Emails and live chat.. They even have a live tracker where they update you with all the details you need..Highly recommended.. Thanks a lot Guys

    Almost perfect, maybe a little slowly like a process, but still correct.

    Really easy process and no issues with the refund process. Kept up to date with the process all the way. The expected return estimate that they gave was the amount that they refunded.
