Benefit calculation according to income from work


​Only a part of your income from work is taken into account, and deducted from the full benefit amount.

At your disposition is a calculator of income support benefit to which you are entitled.

Below, an explanation of the benefit calculation method for someone who earns income from work (as of Jan 01, 2022):

Stage 1

The following amount is to be deducted from the amount of your income (credit on income):

Up to age 55:

  • Single - NIS 528
  • Couple, couple + child/ren - NIS 739
  • Single parent - from your income from work up to NIS 3,567 is deducted NIS 739 .
  • Single parent entitled to a dependents benefit or survivors pension with income supplement - from your work income up to NIS 3,567 are deducted NIS 2,902 .

Age 55 and older:

  • Single - NIS 1,372
  • Couple, couple + child/ren - NIS 1,794
  • Single parent - from your income from work up to NIS 3,567 is deducted NIS 1,794 .
  • Single parent entitled to a dependents benefit or survivors pension with income supplement - from your work income up to NIS 3,567 are deducted NIS 2,902 .


Stage 2

From the balance of your income, after withdrawing the amount of the credit, we calculate:

Up to age 55:

  • Single, couple - 70%
  • Single + child - 67.5%
  • Couple + children - 62.5%

From age 55 and older:

  • Single, couple, single + child/ren - 60%

For a single parent - 25% is deducted up to an income of NIS 3,567 . For income above NIS 3,567 , there is an additional deduction of 60%.

Stage 3

The amount obtained in stage 2 must be subtracted from the amount of the benefit to which you would have been entitled if you were not working. To consult benefit rates.

For instance, for a single parent aged 38 with a gross earning amount of NIS 4,800, the benefit is calculated as follows:

Step 1:

We take out the credit amount of NIS 677 from the income up to NIS 3,270. 3,270 - 677 = 2,593

Step 2:

We calculate 25% of the remaining income up to 3,270 after the credit. 2,593 * 25% = 648

We deduct 3,270 from the gross income. 4,800 -3,270 = 1,530

We calculate 60% of income above NIS 3,567 . 648 + 918 = 1,566

This is the amount deducted from income support benefit. 1,566


If you have incomes both from work and other sources, the calculation method is different.
