Number of elderly Japanese customers with no pension estimated at 420,000 people

”At present, about 420,000 elderly people have no pension. If working-age younger people who have not paid enough in premiums are added, some 1.18 million people won't have pensions. People entitled only to the basic pension receive ¥48,000 a month on average — far less than the amount needed to maintain a decent life after retirement”
