Single parents are also exempted from national pension on October 30 at 6:28

It turned out that the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare is adjusting the payment of national pension premiums for unmarried single parents with low income.

Those who are enrolled in the national pension are supposed to pay a monthly insurance premium of 16,410 yen, but among single parents who died or divorced from their spouse, their income is 1.25 million yen or less People are exempted from paying the full amount if they apply.

However, unmarried single parents were not targeted, so there was an opinion for a similar response.

For this reason, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has made adjustments in the direction of exempting insurance premiums for those with low incomes, just as if they were unmarried and died from their spouse.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare is considering the abolition of the pension notebooks issued to participants as electronic records of records have been advanced in order to manage the payment records of public pension premiums.

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare will present these proposals to the Social Security Council pension committee, which will be held on the 30th, and will conclude this year.
