  1. Interesting. So the water masses must have accumulated mostly downstream it seems. At least my garden pond will be completely filled up by now...
  2. On the contrary, there is a lot of rice farming in this area. Anyway, this event seems rather strange to me. The Kaeng Krachan reservoir feeding the Petchaburi river is nowhere full, 45% as of todays statistic and I can confirm this from my visit about 10 days ago...
  3. Yes, you missed that you only pay 750 Baht per month (5% contribution on max 15,000 income) - same as the employer. Of this contribution only a part is for the pension, the rest being for unemployment, health insurance and child benefits. The return doesnt seem to be too bad really.
  4. Yes, You can absolutely get this. All the info can be found here from the official page of the Thai Social Scurity Office: http://www.sso.go.th/wpr/eng/benefit.html Maximum salary that is currently used for calculatory purpose of both contributions and benefits is THB 15,000 as has been mentioned before. With 22 years of contributions you get 4,000+ Baht monthly pension for life starting at 55 years of age. Not much - yet still better than nothing. Cheers
