Pensioners and Survivors Need to Report Us

100-658-386-814 Last updated date:5 1 2018

Annual Reporting in Your Birth Month - GENKYO TODOKE

In order to continuously receive your pension benefits, you need to have us check annually if there is any change in your eligibility.
If we have your My Number which is a Individual Number for Social Security and Tax purpose, we can access your necessary information on the Basic Resident Registry Network to confirm if you are eligible to continuously receive benefits.
However, My Numbers are not assigned to people who do not have registered address in Japan, such as people living outside of Japan. Or, there are people do have My Numbers but somehow we have not yet have their My Numbers.
If we do not have your My Number, we ask you to report about your information annually in your birth month, by sending us your Annual Reporting on Pensioner’s Eligibility Status called “GENKYO TODOKE”.
Please note that if you fail to submit the report, your pension payment will be suspended until we receive it.

How to send your “GENKYO TODOKE” report

Early in your birth month every year you will receive your report form which is sent directly from our Tokyo Headquarters. You need to fill in your name, address and other necessary information and return it to our Headquarters. Your completed form must be received by our Headquarters by the end of the month.

Documents to be submitted

For those who reported us overseas address

You need to submit any valid document issued by public organization to verify your residence in the country. If you are a Japanese, you may submit a certificate of residence (ZAIRYU SHOMEI) which is issued by Japanese consulate in the country.

For those who reported us address in Japan

From February 2017, you need to submit a certified copy of Japanese resident registry (JUMINHYO), or you need to fill in your My Number on the report form. If your registered address is in Japan and you left Japan, you need to submit a form to report us your address change.

<Documents to verify your My Number>
When you fill in your My Number on the report form, you need to submit a photocopy of document to verify that the number is correct* and that you are the genuine holder of the Number**.

* For example, copy of your My Number Card or My Number notice card which show your Number
** If your name and address are already printed on your report form when you receive it, you do not need to submit document to verify you are the genuine holder of the Number.

What if you do not receive the report form?

If the report form does not reach you by the middle of your birth month, please contact the JPS Branch Office, or your municipal office. Please note that we do not send you the form in following cases, because your reporting is not necessary:

  1. A full year has not yet elapsed between your first pension entitlement date (you can find the date on your Pension Certificate), and the final day of your next birth month.
  2. Payment of your total pension benefit is stopped.
  3. A full year has not yet elapsed between the date your stopped benefits start to be paid again, and the final day of your next birth month. (Except for the case that you are a working beneficiary with full benefits suspension and then your stopped benefits starts because you retire or your remuneration reduces.)
