Special Cash Handout for Newborns
Currently, a nationwide special cash handout is being given out to support household finances amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. However, since only people “registered as residents as of 27 April 2020” are eligible, newborns born after that date are not included.
Hence, Komatsu City has initiated a separate scheme to ease the financial burdens of households who have had to undergo pregnancy and childbirth amidst the uncertainties under the state of emergency. This cash handout is the city’s own initiative, and is intended for guardians of newborns born between 28 April and 31 August 2020.
Infants born from 28 April to 31 August 2020, whose first registration under the Basic Residents Record was as a Komatsu City resident.
Guardians of eligible children.
Within 3 months after the eligible child’s birth.
Application form, copy of personal ID of authorized recipient, and copy of account verification document of bank account (e.g passbook) under recipient’s name.
Please apply at the city hall service counter of the Municipal Services Division.
