Benefit rate


The benefit rate is calculated in percentage of a single full allowance amounting to NIS 2,229 .

There are three levels of entitlement for a disabled ​child allowance:

  1. 50% - benefit rate amounts to NIS 1,268 (overall amount including a supplement of NIS 153 ).
  2. 100% - the benefit rate amounts to NIS 2,608 (overall amount including a supplement of NIS 379 ).
  3. 188% - the benefit rate amounts to NIS 4,773 (overall amount including a supplement of NIS 582 ).

If your child has more than one medical problem entitling him to a benefit, his benefit rate is based on the medical problem entitling him to the highest allowance amount.

If your child is on a respirator, he is entitled to a benefit supplement of NIS 1,850 .

Increased benefit for a family with two disabled children or more

A family with two disabled children or more is entitled to a benefit increased by 50% for each child, in accordance with the benefit that was established for him.
For instance, for a family with two disabled children for whom was established respectively a benefit rate of 100% and 50%, each of them will receive a benefit increased by 50%. In other words, for the increased benefit rate is 150%, for the first child, and 75%, for the second one.

A family with two disabled children will still be entitled to an increased benefit rate even if the benefit for the second child is not paid in practice for one of the following reasons:

  • He is in an institution, a dormitory or a foster family.
  • He is above 18 and payment of his disability pension has discontinued only because he reached the age of 18.

It is important to note that the above increased amount is automatically paid to anyone entitled thereto.
