The Social Insurance Agency said Thursday it has punished 493 officials over a scandal involving unauthorized access to pension-related personal information, such as premium payment records.

The announcement brought the number of agency officials punished to 513, including Akira Mano, who stepped down as agency commissioner earlier this month over the agency’s wasteful use of pension premiums and related problems.

The 493 officials reprimanded or warned this time include 310 who accessed information for purposes other than for work. The remaining officials are their superiors.
