The new program is a supplement to the public pension system supported by government policies, voluntarily attended by individuals and operated by market. Employees at Chinese companies covered by the State-level pension system can deposit up to CNY 12,000 per year into their individual pension accounts, and payments can be made monthly, yearly or by other structured installment plans.
