My Number Registration in Account Sought to Submit A Bill to the Regular Diet next Year At 15:45
Regarding the fact that the government has begun considering requiring all savings accounts to register my number, Mr. Takaichi stressed that the government does not grasp all financial asset information and expressed his intention to revise the system with the understanding of the public.
With regard to the My Number System, the government has begun to consider introducing a system in which the person who wants to register the account to be transferred to the bank to register the account of the transfer destination so that benefits can be paid promptly, and to require financial institutions to register and manage my numbers in all savings accounts.
In this, Mr. Takaichi said at a press conference, “If my number is tied to all savings accounts, it will reduce the burden when understanding where your account was in the event of a disaster or when checking the accounts of people who died during inheritance.”
On top of that, “you can check which financial institutions have accounts, not the contents of your account, and you don’t have to worry about the government being able to grasp all financial asset information.” It is a legislation to make the My Number system effective,” he said, and expressed his intention to submit a bill necessary for the Regular Diet next year while trying to understand the public.
