[COVID-19 info. in Nagoya] Goverment had decided to provide “Benefit”.

I’m confused about COVID-19 situation. I cannot catch those information enough.
I’d like to tell the foreigners who live in Nagoya, Aichi (Japan) about Benefit from government. I think the foreigners who cannot understand Japanese may live and/or work in Nagoya and they may confuse about the current situation about COVID-19.

The official letter from Nagoya city is prepared by only Japanese. If you can see it, i strongly recommend to refer it.
This page is for the foreigners who is not good at Japanese for them reference.

The benefit from Government

As you may know, the government had decided to provide the benefit to us because of COVID-19.
The people who live in Japan (in this page, I focus on Nagoya) can receive it.
It means the people whose name is on the citizen data base can apply it. (= who has “my number”)
That Benefit is 100,000 yen / person; no matter how old you are.

Application page

Before application, you should prepare “my number card of your all family”.

On that application site,
At first, you can choose where you live. (ex. Aichi ken / Nagoya shi)
It can be prepared by only Japanese; I recommend you google how spell it in Japanese.

Then, you choose what kind of benefit you want to apply.
In this case, “Benefit because of COVID-19”.
It is mentioned as “特別定額給付金”. So, you tick or click this word.
