Pension Refund Information

If you are a recent JET Program returnee, you are probably ready to file for your Pension Lump Sum Withdrawal. While not particularly difficult, the given instructions are vague, it takes several months to process, and any mistakes will increase your wait time, so it’s best to make sure everything is correctly filled out the first time.

Here are some instructions and common questions for the Pension Lump Sum Withdrawal, and subsequent Pension Tax Refund. Information is from the Mie JET Programme Guide for Departing JETs, many thanks to the Mie Prefectural Advisors for permission to use.
