Help "my friend" evade Japanese Pension Payments!!
Here is the deal... "My Friend" has lived here for a few years and is currently under a spousal visa. She works full time and has health insurance through a foreign run company.
As of now she has never paid to the "Japanese Pension system" that became mandatory sometime within the last year.
In 3 years she will change to a "permanent resident visa".
When she does this she will start paying pension. However she does not want to have to pay for the years she did not pay.
She has heard that you must pay for the years you have missed when you start paying pension.
What can she do to avoid this backpayment???!?!??
Can she get out of it somehow? I mean the pension plan is garbage anyhow right..
