Disability Certificates

The disability certificate (Shogaisha Techo) allows individuals with disabilities to easily access welfare services. There are three different types of disability certificates:

Physical Disability Certificate (Shintai Shogaisha Techo)

The Physical Disability Certificate is issued to individuals with impaired physical systems (such as vision, hearing, balance, voice, speech, mastication, and limbs) and impaired organ functions (such as the heart, kidneys, respiratory organs, bladder, rectum, small intestine, immune system, and liver). The impairment must be confirmed by a judging institution, which will classify the severity of the impairment from Grade 1 (most severe) to Grade 6 (least severe).

Mental Disability Certificate (Ryoiku Techo)

The Mental Disability Certificate is issued to individuals who first displayed symptoms of impaired mental function as a minor (usually before the age of 18). The impairment must be confirmed to meet certain criteria by a judging institution. The judging institution classifies the severity of the impairment in the form of A1 (most severe), A2 (severe), B1 (moderate), and B2 (mild).

Psychiatric Disability Certificate (Seishin Shogaisha Hoiku Fukushi Techo)

This certificate is for people with a psychiatric impairment that causes limitations in daily and social living for a long period of time. The certificate has three classifications from Grade 1 (severe) to Grade 3 (mild). Those who wish to apply for the certificate must have received the initial diagnosis at least six months prior to applying.
