|To those who live apart from their spouses due to domestic violence
Even those who suffer from domestic violence or others and are forced to live apart from the heads of households like spouses can receive the Special Cash Payments of 100,000 yen.
In other words, the head of household like a spouse, as a rule, who is supposed to receive the total cash payments of all the family members on behalf of them can’t receive the cash payments of the other family members who live apart, so you and your other family members evacuating at another location can receive their own cash payments.
In order for you to receive the cash payments, you need to follow the necessary procedure at the municipal office. So please contact the municipal office and proceed with the procedure as soon as possible. Otherwise the head of household could apply for the total cash payments.
Please find the applying procedure, application form and other explanation at the following website.
