Q: Social Security paymentts - anyone got them back?

In theory, we can get those payments back when we leave China.

 

So - has anyone left after paying them, and gotten them back? Or tried, but still waiting? If tried, what was the process - long and painful, or oddly simple and easy?

I've never think about return of SS payments. I think, poster with WCG (or similar) handle sued School and won monnies a month ago.

I would ask at SAFEA foe detailed info about that.

Forget about that, even the young Chinese people don't expect to get their social security payments after they retire. The governors have been splurging the money.

What I'm confused is the fact in some areas we (foreigners) have to pay SS & on others we don't. I've worked in GZ for two years & didn't pay. I'm just transferring my work permit to a company in Shunde & again it's not been mentioned. 

 

Yet the 2011(?) SS law update said all foreigners must now pay. 

 

So why the inconsistent enforcement? (Please no TIC replies!)

 

Does anyone have a list of which provinces/cities enforce the SS laws?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
