Hello, this is COVID-19 Assistance Service.
We help foreign residents in Japan find appropriate solutions to their problems and provide various kinds of assistance such as referrals to other agencies, support for application procedures, and food assistance.
This time, we would like to introduce our assistance services for those who are unable to work for a certain period due to the COVD-19 infection and need financial support.
【Allowance for injuries and diseases】
You can receive the allowance for injuries and diseases from the health insurance (Social insurance or National Health insurance) for the period you were unable to work due to the COVID-19 infection.
【Mr. E’s Case】
Mr. E requested financial support since his income had been reduced upon his COVID-19 infection. After consulting him over the phone and email, we provided him with information on applying for the allowance for injuries and diseases in English. He was able to receive it at the end.
In this way, the COVID-19 Assistance Service provides individual and solution-oriented support while maintaining close communication with consultants.
If you are in trouble but cannot find anyone to turn to, or if you do not know where to turn, please come and talk to us.
