You are entitled to a refund of your Social Insurance contributions

After a year a half of back and forth with the Bermuda Dept. of Social Insurance they refunded the payments I made to the Social Insurance Fund when I work there as an ex-pat for three years.

If you are now 65 or older, and worked in Bermuda as an ex-pat and paid into the Social Insurance Fund, you can get this "gratuity" too.

The link to the form does not work. I wrote an e-mail and was sent a pension form.
Do not fill in the online form - it infers that you are looking for a pension, which you are not entitled to. This is what spun my process into a year and a half. The Ministry's Business process for this is underdeveloped, dots do not join....
Instead, apply via letter to the very helpful Joy Joell:
Joy B. A. Joell
Senior Benefits Processor
Ministry of Finance
Department of Social Insurance
30 Parliament Street, Hamilton HM 12
P. O. Box HM 1537, Hamilton HM FX
Email: jjoell@gov.bm
Tel: (441) 295-5151 Ext. 1856 Fax: (441) 292-5267


Good luck!

Were you able to claim only your contributions or could you claim the aggregate that both you and your employer paid on your behalf (as the employer pays 50%)

This is a great post! Thank you for being so helpful to your fellow expats (and sorry to hear about all your troubles in getting your refund).

I hope some people can benefit from this. I doubt that there will be anything left for me to reclaim by the time I turn 65.

Did you have to wait until you were 65? The email that you listed is not working, I assume they have left that position.

Any other help or anything else you know would be helpful as I am trying to get my pensions now.
