I’ve been living and working in Japan for 5 years. The first 3.5 years I was working for an Eikaiwa so I was paying into the pension and health insurance.
I’ve since gotten a new job that isn’t in the national pension scheme so I’m not paying the pension.
My question is…I know I’m able to collect up to 3 years worth of the pension when I leave Japan a is me not paying it recently going to affect what I can get back when I leave?
Has anyone paid, then not paid, and still receive their refund?
Thanks in advance!
