Grant to Discharged Soldiers Performing Vital Work

Under the National Insurance Law, a one-time grant is paid to soldiers who are discharged from compulsory service or to women who have completed 24 months of national service (someone who terminated her service to get married will receive the grant, provided that she completed at least 6 months of service and was married within 30 days of the date of termination of the service) and who worked for six full months in vital work. Those who worked less than six full months may be eligible for a partial grant under certain conditions if they performed work defined as preferred job.

This must be a full-time job, as defined in your particular branch of occupation, in general 8 working hours  per day.
In any part-time job situation, you must approach us to clarify eligibility by means of the website or the *6050 call center.

If you have been offered an unlisted job or have any doubt, we advise you to contact the National Insurance's branch nearest your place of residence before starting your employment, and check if the job is actually recognized for purpose of the grant.

Due to the Corona crisis, relaxations apply to the conditions of entitlement to preferred work grant. Click here to learn more.
