    Fulfilling Full Employment Rights of Retired Migrant Workers, West Java Provincial Government Signed Agreement with The Three Parties


    BANDUNG-To fulfill the rights of Indonesian Workers (TKI), especially migrant workers who have retired or after-work from South Korean, West Java Provincial Government signed an agreement cooperation with BPJS Employment Central, BNP2TKI, and BJB Bank. West Java Governor Ahmad Heryawan (Aher) directly attends this signing ceremony in the West Hall of Gedung Sate, Diponegoro Street No. 22, Bandung, on Wednesday afternoon (08/02/17).
    This agreement is related to process of lump sum retirement benefit claims submission. This is done because many social security that is followed by workers in South Korea, such as the Old Age Security program (JHT) and pensions (JP) have not been taken by the workers who have completed their contracts.
    "Of course this is important stuff. For Indonesian Workers who had worked in South Korea after a full duty in South Korea turns out they have the right to obtain insurance claim," Aher said in his speech after signing the agreement.
    In West Java, there are as many as 1,737 workers have yet to take the insurance fund, the value of insurance claims reached almost USD 100 billion. In South Korea alone fund is managed by the National Pension Service of the Republic of Korea (South Korea NPS).
    To that end, according Aher this agreement as the provincial government efforts to push for an insurance fund that is the right of migrant workers can be rapidly disbursed. "We must fight for the rights of our workers who worked there. Plus then we should help facilitate the processing of claims in order to go to Indonesia and accepted by the retirement of the labor force," said Aher.
    Under the provisions in force in South Korea, funds of JHT and JP buildup of more than 5 (five) years and not paid to workers will be channeled to the Social Institutions in South Korea. This is very detrimental to workers.
    "Because if not taken care of more than five years, the fund will be handed over to charities in Korea, so our BPJS Employment together with social institution among nations interact to create a memorandum of understanding," said the Managing Director of BPJS Employment Centre, Agus Susanto, after signing the agreement.
    Indonesia Manpower when arriving in South Korea directly covered by insurance from the Government of South Korea. However, because the procedures and other things, when their working days are finished, the migrant workers have not time to take out the insurance fund of their rights.
    "The labor that are located in Korea, once he landed in Korea, he is (TKI) directly covered by Government of Korea insurance, the NPS South Korea. As soon as he came home he should claim the pension insurance, but because he has not enough time, there are procedures so hurried return. The fund is still there and this should be taken care of, "said Agus.
    On this occasion also signed a joint agreement on Tera, Re-Tera, and Supervision of Legal Metrology by the Government of Karawang, Subang and Purwakarta.
    It is based on the provisions of Article 12 paragraph 3 of Law No. 23 Year 2014 on Regional Government, which states that the Tera Service, Re-Tera, and Supervision of Legal Metrology, which was originally a provincial government affairs turned into affairs of regency / city government.
