    Abstract

    This paper investigates whether or not the admission of unskilled immigrants, whose children incur assimilation costs in order to become skilled workers, has a positive impact on the net benefits for native residents and immigrants under a defined-benefit pension system (DB system). The results under the DB system are compared with those under the DC system, showing that the number of immigrants under the DB system to render the net benefits for the native residents positive is higher than that under the DC system.
