Pension Fund Association


Japan’s Pension Fund Association (PFA) was founded in 1967 as a federation of employees’ pension funds, based on the Employees’ Pension Insurance Act, and the Pension Fund Association in its present form was established under the revision of the Act in 2004.

In addition, the PFA provides pension benefits to those who seceded from employees’ pension funds after a short period (usually less than 10 years) of membership (midway seceders) in an integrated manner, and undertakes the aggregation of different corporate pension plans, including employees’ pension funds, defined benefit corporate plans and defined contribution plans.
