Q1.Who can claim a pension refund to Japan? To claim it what should I do before leaving Japan?
【ANSWER】

Foreigners can claim Japanese pension refunds (Lump-sum Withdrawal Payments) on the conditions that

(1)You are not a Japanese citizen,
(2)You have paid Japanese pension contributions more than 6 months, and
(3)You are not a resident in Japan.

All in all, the majority of foreigners who worked in Japan in a short period with working visas are to get qualified to claim their pension refunds after leaving Japan.
They can claim their pension refunds within 2 years after leaving Japan.

To satisfy the condition (3) you need to apply fora "notification of moving-out (転出届[tenshutustodoke, てんしゅつとどけ] in Japanese)" just before you leave Japan, to the municipal office where you are registered as a resident.
So if you claim your pension refund please apply for “notification” to the municipal office just before you leave Japan.

YouAT LLC is entitled to apply for “notification” on behalf of you. We can give you a service to apply for "notification" if you have no time to go to the municipal office before leaving Japan.

【ANSWER】

《AMOUNT OF REFUND》
It depends on how much and for how many months you paid pension contributions.
Roughly speaking,

  • If you work in Japan 1 year then you will be able to receive nearly 1 month's "average standard remuneration".
  • If you work in Japan 2 years then you will be able to receive nearly 2 month's "average standard remuneration".
  • If you work in Japan 3 years or more then you will be able to receive nearly 3 month's "average standard remuneration".

Your "average standard remuneration" is calculated by the Japanese law according to (but not always equal to) averaging your salaries and bonuses you got in Japan. More detail information is shown on this article of our blog.
YouAT LLC will give you a free research of the estimated sum of your pension refund before giving you our service.

《CLAIMING PERIOD》
We instruct you to prepare documents in order to claim your pension refund as fast as possible. Please prepare documents and mail us them quickly. In the fastest case, the payoff day except for 20% tax will come in 3 to 4 months after we receive claiming documents.
The 20% tax will be refunded by us in another 1 to 3 months.

Q4.I'd like to claim my pension refund by myself. Can’t I do so?
【ANSWER】

You can do it yourself, of course.
But there are challenges you face when you claim your pension refund from abroad:

  • If there are any defects in documents, your claim isn’t accepted and sent back to you.
  • You must use Japanese to ask the government questions to gather information how your claim goes.
  • 20% of pension refunds are withheld as income tax according to “Japanese Tax Act”. So you will get only 80% of total refund if you claim it by yourself.

According to “Japanese Income Tax Act”, this 20% tax can be almost fully refunded if you designate a tax agent in Japan.

YouAT LLC carries out TOTAL PROCESS of your pension refund in abroad, and refund its 20% as well. We examine all of your documents before claiming and help you succeed in your refund surely.
Our fees are set well under 20% tax. So we can send you “refunded tax minus our fee” into your bank account. We have the system to send more than 80 % of foreigners’ pension refunds to our customers.
