Health and Pension Insurance in Japan? What's the difference?

The General Union has put out a lot of information in regards to Shakai Hoken (public health and pension insurance), but did you know that most workers in private schools, including universities, are enrolled in an even better scheme?

This health and pension scheme is known as Shigaku Kyosai and as you can see from the chart below, it offers increased protection.
Compare this to the Kokumin Kenko Hoken/Nenkin (National Health/Pension Insurance) offered through your city office and you'll see why the General Union demands full enrolment of university and private school teachers in Shigaku Kyosai.
