Basically I have lived in Japan for a number of years and have never paid the pension or any health insurance. From the middle of next month I will start a new job where they will sign me up to Shakai Hoken. I am expecting a lot financial and bureaucratic pain.
I have three questions relating to this:
What is going to happen?
How much will I have to back pay?
Is there any way to avoid back payment by exploiting some bureaucratic loophole?
I will be changing prefectures to start my new job if that is of any significance.
I am just curious to know if there is any way to get around back payment, particularly if I am going onto Shakai Hoken.
