Today I'm spending some time trying to understand the Japanese national pension system :blobsweat:

Surprisingly everything about Japan's national pension is clearly explained in English, and there are even pamphlets in various languages:

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.
