Social Insurance System

Some basics about social insurance, Japan’s version of U.S.’s social security. The term “social insurance” captures health, medical, and pension plans and systems in Japan and is most commonly represented by health insurance laws (Health Insurance Law and National Health Insurance Law) and pension laws (Welfare and Pension Law and National Pension Law).

Social insurance plans and systems are administered by the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare, one of the eleven Ministries of Japan.

However, the Ministry delegates the daily administration of social insurance system to its external organization, Social Insurance Agency. The Agency is responsible for the administration and operation of the following Japanese social insurance systems: the Government- managed Employees’ Health Insurance, the Seamen’s Insurance, the Employees’ Pension Insurance and the National Pension.

Social Insurance Agency does not have a physical address because its operations are administered by 47 Regional Social Insurance Bureaus that are located at prefecture level and 265 Social Insurance Offices and their supplemental 71 Pension Consultation Centers throughout the nation.

Shinjuku Social Insurance Office(新宿社会保険事務所) has the best staff to support non-Japanese nationals.
