Payment of Injury and Accident Mutual Aid Benefits

Injury and Accident Mutual Aid Benefit System

The Injury and Accident Mutual Aid Benefit System provides benefits (medical expenses, disability compensation or death compensation) in cases of injury, illness, disease, accident, or death that occur to students and younger children while under the supervision of schools or nurseries based on a contract (Injury and accident mutual aid benefit contract) between the JSC and school operators. The injuries and accidents under the supervision of schools refer to those that occur during class hours based on the school curriculum (including childcare hours at nurseries), as well as during extra-curricular instruction hours, during breaks (including before class and after school), or on the way to and from school (or nurseries).
