The National Insurance Institute is at your side during your life, from birth to advanced age, granting you a variety of social rights adapted to changing life situations.
The National Insurance Institute is responsible for the social security of Israeli residents.
Its primary mission is to ensure means of subsistence for those unable to earn their living.
The National Insurance Institute collects insurance contributions from all residents according to their social background and status, and pays benefits to those entitled. Hence, the income of economically established groups is transferred to weak and vulnerable groups and, thereby, the National Insurance Institute contributes to a more equitable distribution of national income and the reduction of dimensions of poverty.

If it ruled against your permit application and you have a judgment suspending execution against the foreign worker or allowing a period of preparation - you can continue to receive the benefit.
If you employ a full-time caregiver, you need to submit to the National Insurance Institute a claim for cash benefit payment to persons employing a full-time caregiver, in order to obtain the benefit in cash.
The benefit is paid on your bank account every 28 of the month. Payment date of the benefit may change for some months of the year due to holidays. Dates of payment are updated on the calendar of benefit payments (in Hebrew)
