It's mid-July and we still haven't seen any money transferred, though we sent our applications more than four weeks ago.

I hope no one here qualifies for this payout:

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

There has been many troubles with this card and using it online to receive the money as it still has to be checked by an actual person. Heard there were lots of trouble in Osaka regarding it.

Got my application pretty early, for 5 of us, but wonder how people will use it... The poor ones will use it for their needs but the rich ones will probably just put it on their account...

You had to check or not check on the application to receive the money but don't think many would say... I don't need the money..

I don't think so either. Have you already received payments in Kobe?
