1.Kosei Nenkin (Employees’ Pension Insurance)

Kosei Nenkin (厚生年金, こうせいねんきん) covers people who are employed by companies.

Pension refund (Lump-sum Withdrawal Payments) of Kosei Nenkin is calculated as

Pension Refund = Average Standard Remuneration * Multiplier

(*)Average Standard Remuneration is calculated from the average of your salaries and bonuses you receive throughout the period in that you pay your pension contributions. Please note that it isn’t necessarily the same as the average of your REAL salaries & bonuses (especially if your monthly salary is over 650,000 Yen it is trimmed to 650,000 Yen to derive Average Standard Remuneration).

Your pension refund amount is decided multiplying this Average Standard Remuneration by Multiplier according to your contributed months, shown below.

Case 1: You contribute Kosei Nenkin in April 2021 or after

Months ContributedMultiplier
6-110.5
12-171.1
18-231.6
24-292.2
30-352.7
36-413.3
42-473.8
48-534.4
54-594.9
over605.5


Case 2: You end contributions of Kosei Nenkin in March 2021 or before

Months ContributedMultiplier
6-110.5
12-171.1
18-231.6
24-292.2
30-352.7
over363.3


[NOTE1] App. 20% of pension refunds are withheld as income tax.
[NOTE2] The sum of Lump-sum Payments are calculated by Japanese Yen. When they are transferred into the bank accounts you designate, they will be exchanged from yen into a foreign currency.
 

2.Kokumin Nenkin (National Pension)

Kokumin Nenkin (国民年金,こくみんねんきん) covers people who are not employed by companies or public offices, that is, for example, the self-employed persons.

Pension refund (Lump-sum Withdrawal Payments) of Kokumin Nenkin is paid in the same way as Kosei Nenkin, according to your contribution months.
To take an example,

Case 1: You end contributions of Kokumin Nenkin from April 2022 to March 2023

Months ContributedRefund Amount (JPY)
6-1149,770
12-1799,540
18-23149,310
24-29199,080
30-35248,850
36-41298,620
42-47348,390
48-53398,160
54-59447,930
over60497,700


Case 2: You end contributions of Kokumin Nenkin in March 2021 or before

If you ended contributions of Kokumin Nenkin in March 2021 or before, your pension refund is paid only by 36 months.
How much it is paid differs year by year (not drastically but modestly), so this is one example.

Example: You end contributions of Kokumin Nenkin from April 2020 to March 2021
Months ContributedRefund Amount (JPY)
6-1149,620
12-1799,240
18-23148,860
24-29198,480
30-35248,100
over36297,720


[NOTE]The sum of Lump-sum Payments are calculated by Japanese Yen. When they are transferred into the bank accounts you designate, they will be exchanged from yen into a certain currency according to your accounts.
