Employees' Retirement Plan

The Labor Pension Act protects workers' incomes following retirement, strengthens the relations between workers and employers, and promotes social and economic developments. The Act mandates two separate systems whose application is dependent upon the time that individuals started their employment. Under old system, employees needed to send reserve funds to The Supervisory Committee of Workers’ Retirement Fund. This committee deposited the funds into the Bank of Taiwan, a national bank responsible for the fiduciary management of the funds. Under the new system, the company must deposit a more than 6% labor pension payment into the employees’ accounts for a retirement pension under Bureau of Labor Insurance.
