  • What does the DPJ's pension reform mean for foreigners?

    Saying they won the upcoming election, which looks doubtful...what would the party's pension reform mean for foreigners? I ask this because I heard a rumor that 'steps to insure that long-term foreign residents MUST pay into Japan's pension' will be put into play. Is their any truth to this? If so...that sucks for me, I havent paid in 3 years but keep getting bill for RIDICULOUS amounts of yen. I plan to be here a while because my wife is Japanese but we definitely don't plan to retire here...Anyone else heard of this and concerned about it?

    Do you believe that they will win the election? I think that they will have too many problems to really worry about long term foreigners paying into the pension. However, Must does not mean that long termers Will . For years we have been told that we MUST pay for pensions, like we Must pay for NHK.

    Anyhow, they will not win.
