The National Insurance Institute is at your side during your life, from birth to advanced age, granting you a variety of social rights adapted to changing life situations.
The National Insurance Institute is responsible for the social security of Israeli residents.
Its primary mission is to ensure means of subsistence for those unable to earn their living.
The National Insurance Institute collects insurance contributions from all residents according to their social background and status, and pays benefits to those entitled. Hence, the income of economically established groups is transferred to weak and vulnerable groups and, thereby, the National Insurance Institute contributes to a more equitable distribution of national income and the reduction of dimensions of poverty.

Did you send employees on unpaid leave? You need to report their work stoppage to us!
Please note, an employee sent on unpaid leave will be entitled to unemployment benefits if the unpaid leave period lasts at least 14 days.
Employer's reports on worker's employment status affect the period of entitlement, as well as the calculation of workers' unemployment benefits.
It is therefore very important to care about the precision of reported information, to help employees receive what they are due during that period.
Is performed by issuing a "work stoppage file" mentioning the ground and date of work stoppage of the last working day.
In this case, there is no need to issue a "Form 100".
For instance: the employee went on a first unpaid leave on 15.3.2020, came back to work on 1.5.2020, then went back on unpaid leave on 15.9.2020 - it shall be reported by means of a "work stoppage" file only. The report involves: work stopped as of 15.9.2020 (last day of work)/ ground: unpaid leave / work starting date: leave blank - no need to report.
Reporting an employee who was sent on unpaid leave/dismissed/resigned for the first time - the employer has to communicate to the National Insurance Institute, through payroll system:
For instance: an employee who started working on 1.1.2018, went on unpaid leave on 1.9.2020, shall be reported as follows: Issuing a "Form 100" mentioning the date of first day of work, as well as issuing a "work stoppage file" as of 13.9.2020 mentioning the ground "departure on unpaid leave".
Reporting the return to work of an employee that was sent on unpaid leave is performed through the payroll system - the date of return to work shall be reported.
Even the employee is required to declare the work stoppage/return to work on the website of the National Insurance Institute.
