7 Simple Steps to Inquire for your NPS or Kukmin Contribution Online

The National Pension Service or 국민연금 (read as Kukminyoenkeum) is a public pension fund in South Korea. If you are in South Korea to work, you are obliged to contribute monthly for your NPS. It is similar to the Social Security System (SSS) in the Philippines. The mechanic is when you pay your monthly contribution to your NPS, your boss will contribute the same amount to your NPS account. So for example your monthly contribution in 84,000 Won, your boss will pay the same and that would make a total of 168,000 Won under your account.

This scheme is very favorable to the workers in South Korea because after your sojourn in the country, you will get the lump sum of your contribution. Imagine if you are contributing monthly for three years, that would make a handsome amount of money after your contract, something you can use to start a new business in the Philippines.
