When does account transfer start?

If you apply with a cash card or bank transfer request form by around the 25th of the month in which the bank transfer will start, we will send you a notice of the start of the bank transfer (to the head of the household).
If you apply by AIRPOST, we will send you a notice of the start of account transfer in the + message that you applied.

Guideline for starting account transfer

  • In the case of procedures using a cash card, account transfer will start from the month following the month of application.
  • In the case of procedure by bank transfer request form Bank transfer will start from the second month after the application month
  • In the case of procedures by AIRPOST, account transfer will start from the month following the month of application.

When is the account transfer date (withdrawal date)?

  • Last day of every month. If the last day falls on a holiday of the financial institution, it will be the next business day.
  • As a general rule, there is no account transfer in April and May.
    For those who newly enrolled in Nakano Ward's National Health Insurance from March to April, the insurance premium may be withdrawn in April and May.

What should I do if the transfer fails?

If the account balance is insufficient and the transfer cannot be made, the transfer will be made again on the next transfer date. If the transfer is not possible for a period of time, the account transfer registration may be canceled.

How can I change the transfer account?

Please repeat the above procedure using a smartphone, using a cash card, or using a bank transfer request form.

Can I know the amount of the account transfer?

This is the amount in the "Amount to be paid" column of the insurance premium payment notification. (This is the sum of all members of the household enrolled in National Health Insurance.)

Is it possible to know the annual transferred amount?

At the end of December every year, we will inform you of the amount of insurance premiums transferred from January to December of that year by means of a notification of the amount of National Health Insurance premiums transferred by bank transfer.

Will a receipt be issued?

Receipts will not be issued for insurance premiums that have been transferred to your bank account, so please check your passbook for monthly transfer results.
