After working for 4 years in France, I have been working for 6 years already in Japan (both as a full-time employee).

How do pensions work in that case?
Do years in France and years in Japan get counted automatically, or do I have to do something special?

The Agreement between Japan and France on Social Security

According to above article, if you paid pension in both countries they will be added together.

  • As for his question, no, they will probably not added together automatically. You have to apply for it. Here are a bunch of documents available in PDF format for download: nenkin.go.jp/n/www/agreement/detail.jsp?id=1021 I think the easiest way is to give Embassy of France a call and ask them directly.
