Opening a savings plan for a newborn child


​Congratulations!

Now, after the birth, you have to choose if you wish to open for your newborn child a savings plan in a provident fund or a bank, select an investment profile, as well as decide whether or not to add another NIS 52 (as of Jan 01, 2022) out of the child allowance, and double savings amount up to NIS 104 (as of Jan 01, 2022) per month.

You can choose how savings will be managed within 6 months since the date of birth,

Please note, should you neglect to make a choice, saving money would be managed by the provident fund or the bank which has been selected for the child born before him or her. In case you did not make a selection for previous child, or the newborn is the first child in the family, savings money will be deposited for investment in a provident fund.

How much money is deposited under the plan?

The National Insurance Institute deposits in the savings plan NIS 52 (as of Jan 01, 2022), the 20th of each month (the date of child allowance payment).

In addition, you can decide to deposit another NIS 52 (as of Jan 01, 2022) out of the child allowance you are paid. By that means, the amount of savings for your child will raise to NIS 104 (as of Jan 01, 2022) per month, and be able to guarantee that, 18 years later, a substantial amount of money will be at his or her disposal.
