- Copy of your passport (must include the pages to prove your name, birth date, nationality, signature, status of residence.)
- Certification by your bank to prove its company name, branch name, location, your account number, and that your account is your own (Without this certification, you need your bank's certification on your request form.)
- Copy of a document that proves your basic pension number.
- Certification of no residency in Japan (e.g., "Jyuminhyo-no-johyo", moving out record of resident card) (Notes)
- "Certification of no residency in Japan" refers to the following.
Attachments are not required if the person had already left Japan. In this case PMAC will try to confirm that the person is not a resident in Japan anymore. However, if we are unable to confirm this, the claim for the benefits will not be fulfilled and the request (documents) will not be accepted and will be returned. The person will be required to re-do the departure procedure to claim the Lump-sum Withdrawal Payments again.
If the document is obtained from the municipal office before the planned departure date,
-> attach the “Copy of the resident registry document stating that the person is planned to leave Japan”
If the document is obtained from the municipal office after the departure date,
-> attach the "Deleted residence record"
From March 1st, 2017, the ruling changed to allow the request while in Japan, if the request is made after the "planned departure date" stated on the certificate of residency. If you want to submit your Claim in Japan before returning to your country, submit your Claim to the Promotion and Mutual Aid Corporation for Private Schools of Japan after the (planned) submission date of your Moving-out Notification and canceling your resident registration. If you wish to submit your Claim by mail, make sure that the Promotion and Mutual Aid Corporation for Private Schools of Japan will receive your Claim after the (planned) submission date of your Moving-out Notification.
