I think it is a great thing the govt. is stepping in to help out financially.
You haven't received your payout yet. Time to make a visit to the city office. Do you have a "My Number" card ? If not, I highly recommend you getting one. You'll need to receive your Japanese pension. ( this may vary from prefecture to prefecture )
I received three payments: one for the members of my family, one from the municipal government for my business, and one from the prefectural government fo my business. All arrived perhaps two weeks ago
