Turkey allows pension plan contributions in foreign currency

Business people working together in office

Turkish nationals who are no longer residents of the country and individuals born in Turkey who have given up their Turkish nationality (“blue card” holders), can contribute to a Turkish private pension plan using foreign currency. However, the law allows the president to reduce the state pension contributions to 10% for those contributions paid in foreign currency, capped at the monthly gross minimum wage.
