Money Matters

My employer did not give me my pension information until just hours before my flight. What can I do now?

You can still apply for the return of the pension contributions you have made while in Korea after you have left the country. You can try contacting the NPS directly or you can have a lawyer in Korea or in your home country initiate the process on your behalf.

The pension refund can be sent to you in your home country or it can be paid into your account in Korea. For the latter, just make sure that you have completed all the paperwork required to allow you to access your Korean account from overseas and that your account has not lain dormant (with no activity) for more than 6 months.
