International Social Security Conventions

The National Insurance is responsible for the social security of the residents of Israel, and pays benefits to those entitled according to the social laws of the State of Israel.

In addition, the National Insurance is responsible for implementing International Conventions regarding social security, ensuring the rights of those traveling between Israel and a convention country .

The international conventions impart the residents of Israel and the residents of the convention countries the right to receive benefits and prevent double insurance payments, insure succession of insurance periods, and more, according to the terms of each individual convention.

A person moving from Israel to a convention country or from a convention country to Israel should contact the International Affairs Division at the National Insurance Institute to ensure his or her rights.
