An employee may apply for voluntary retirement and claim for the retirement reserve fund when he/she has worked for more than 25 years; or attains the age of 55 and has worked for 15 years; or attains the age of 60 and has worked for 10 years. To make up a deficiency in the retirement reserve fund, an amount equal to 12% of the monthly salary shall be contributed as the "pay-as-you-go" contribution benefit, pursuant to the Regulation of Pay-As-You-Go' Contribution Benefit. 50% of the contribution shall be drawn from an employee's monthly salary, and the Academy shall provide the other 50% of the contribution. The whole amount will be transferred to the employee's account when he/she resigns (The process may take about 2 months).When foreign employees meet the requirements for retirement stipulated in the Labor Standards Act, the retirement payment shall be compensated by the principal and interest of the mandatory pension contribution first, and the insufficient part of the payment shall be covered by the Academy.
