Hi all and Happy New Year!
Although I tried to find relevant information here at Forumosa and generally online, I would like to ask some questions related to Pensions from Taiwanese government.
For the past almost 2,5 years I hold a regular ARC and I am a full time employee in consultancies here in Taiwan. Before I start working I asked and I researched that I am not entitled to be registered in the “National Pension System” of Taiwan and therefore in my salary statement “Labor insurance retirement” was always blank (or i think you have to stay in the country at least 7 years in order to be able to be registered).
However, this year I plan to marry my girlfriend and I want to ask if being married to a Taiwanese if I then can have the right to pay my share and after, I do not know how many years, I can get a pension from Taiwan (ok ok… I know it is in trouble etc ).
Also, my girlfriend and I are thinking to move back to my home-country sometime later (not sure though) but I wonder if we set-up an office here with her before we leave, we come and go, in this case can I still be paying monthly my labor insurance retirement share and get a Pension from Taiwan? I think in order to be able to have health care, even arc etc you need to be in the country for at least 180 days… does this apply also to pension related matters?
If this question is asked before, could you please direct me to the relevant topic and lock this one?
Thanks a lot for any info!
