Grant to intended parent


 

A birth grant is paid to intended parents as a participation to first expenses incurred at the reception of the child in the family.

You will be entitled to a grant if at least one of the parents is an Israeli resident.

Grant rates (as of Jan 01, 2021)

The amount of the birth grant you will receive is determined based on the number of children in the family:

  • For a first child you will receive a grant of NIS 1,783
  • For a second child you will receive a grant of NIS 802
  • From the third child you will receive a grant of NIS 535
  • If you gave birth to twins you will receive a grant of NIS 8,915
  • If you gave birth to triplets you will receive a grant of NIS 8,915

If you gave birth to more than one child in closely spaced births (at an interval of up to 98 days between the first and the second births) - you may be entitled to a birth grant of the same amount paid for the birth of twins or triplets, depending on the number of children you have received.

In order to check your eligibility for a grant in case of closely spaced births, you must contact a branch of the National Insurance.

Please note that the amount of the grant is determined in accordance with the amounts updated to the date of reception of the child.

Submitting a grant claim

In order to obtain the birth grant, one must submit a claim for Birth and Hospitalization Grant (BL/300) within a 18-month deadline since the day of reception of the child in intended parents' custody, and attach a certificate of birth in a medical institution.
You can submit a claim together with required documents to your local branch directly by means of the document sending service on the website.
