The National Insurance Institute provides various benefits to people with lower body impairments that limit their mobility, with the aim of helping them to integrate into the community and develop an independent life. Although most benefits are granted to car owners, some benefits are also granted to those who do not own a car.

The benefits are paid for by state funds under a Mobility Agreement signed between the Ministry of Finance and the National Insurance Institute.

To a list of mobility benefits


Mobility disability is determined by the Medical Committees of the Health Ministry. Therefore, before submitting a claim for mobility benefits to the National Insurance Institute, you must first submit an application for examination by Medical Committees of the Health Ministry.

These committees determine whether or not there is a leg impairment in accordance with a list of defined impairments (in Hebrew), whether there is need and use of a wheelchair and whether the impairment is a temporary or a permanent one.
