Burial Expenses

The National Insurance Institute pays burial expenses and for related services for every person who dies in Israel and is buried in Israel, and for every Israeli resident who dies outside of Israel.

The payments are transferred directly from the NII to the Hevra Kadisha and to any other entity that is duly authorized to conduct burials, which has signed an agreement with the National Insurance Institute in this matter.

The National Insurance Institute covers the burial expenses and costs of related services on the day of the burial only.
