 Childbirth Allowance

When you give a birth to a baby at a hospital, you can apply for a childbirth allowance, “SHUSSAN IKUJI ICHIJI KIN” (A system in which you can receive 420,000 yen from National Health Insurance after giving birth.) Some hospitals don’t have this system so please ask your hospital directly.

If the expense of the delivery is more than 420,000 yen, you will need to pay the rest of the money to the hospital.

If the expense of the delivery is less than 420,000 yen, you will receive the rest of the money from National Health Insurance.
