Pension Benefits for persons Age 70 and Older

When a member who is still employed reaches age 70, they change the membership type for Pension Benefits on the date they reached age 70, in principle. Type A-1 members becomes Type B-2 members, and Type C-1 members become Type C-3 specified personnel. (refer to membership types) This transition is called withdrawal at age 70. Therefore, Type B-2 members pay one half of the Short-Term Benefit premiums only (the other half is covered by the member’s school). Type C-3 specified personnel no longer need to pay the premiums.

If the Pension-benefit Qualifying Period is not met by the date a member reaches age 70, by applying for “Voluntarily Continued Plan after the Age of 70”, the member can continue to be participated in to Employees’ Pension Insurance as a Type A-2 (or Type C-2) member. The insurance premiums can be paid (1) in full by the member or (2) in equal shares by the member and their school upon an agreement between them.
