When you are self-employed or unemployed and have difficulties in paying National Pension contributions because of low income, you can apply for the Exemption or Deferred Payment System for National Pension contributions. The amount of exemption is determined based on your household income from the previous year (In 2023, the term is January 1 to December 31, 2022.)
※The application must be filed every year. Applications for this year have been accepted since July 1, 2023. However, if you have applied for “continuous application” and been approved by June 30, 2023, you don’t have to apply this year. If you want to apply for this system, you can get the application form at the City Office, the Toyokawa Branch or the Todoromi Branch. Please contact the office below for the necessary documents other than the application form.
※If you had a full or partial exemption in the past and the period is within 10 years, you can recover by paying the exempted payments retroactively.
