Please note,

If you have an incapacity degree of 74%, 65% or 60% and you earn more than NIS 2,216 a month, you will be entitled to the full increment for your spouse and/or children.

Going out to work is worthwhile

If you go out to work, your overall income from work and from pension will always be higher than the mere amount of the pension.

Impact of incomes not from work on pension rate

If you have incomes not from work (such as retirement pension, rent, scholarship, other benefits from the NII or other entities, return on investments) and are entitled to an increment for a spouse and/or children – all sums of income not from work will be deducted from the increment to which you are entitled.

In any event, the pension paid after the deduction will amount to a full monthly pension at least - NIS 3,321 .

Please note, alimony payments paid by the father for his children are not deducted from the increment for children on the mother's disability pension. However, alimony paid for the mother are regarded as part of her income not from work, and as such are deducted from the increment for children.
