I wish I could say the same of the Italian National Pension System (INPS).
I paid contributions for about 9 years, and now the funds are locked and I can't figure out how to move them to either the US or Japan...
The US Social Security also took over $100k in payments from my payroll, but there's no obvious way to cash out or move the money to another country in case you leave.
@codewiz Same for me in the Swedish system. Also, my eployers did payments into various private pension funds, most of which I have no idea which companies handled it so it's unlikely I'll be able to get to that money.
Italian National Pension System = INPS!
