Individual Number mailing will begin in November!

Individual Number mailing will begin in November!

・The Social Security and Tax Number System (“My Number” or Individual Number) has begun in Japan in October.

・The 12-digit Individual Number, each one unique to its holder, is important because they are required for procedures at municipal offices, etc.

・For those who are registered as residents of the City of Kitakyushu, an envelope will be delivered to your residence in November (to the address appearing in your resident record).

・The envelope contains a “Notification Card” with your Individual Number on it.

・If the recipient is not home when delivery is attempted, ‘Undeliverable Item Notice’ will be left in your mailbox. Please contact the contact information for inquiries written on the notice form, and make sure to pick up the envelope.
