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.

Dependents’ grant, marriage grant, bar-mitzvah grant, death grant
The right of a widower to receive monthly dependents’ benefits expires once his children are no longer minors. At that point he shall receive a one-time grant equivalent to 36 monthly payments. He shall continue to be paid benefits if he is unable to support himself or if his income does not exceed the amount determined by law of NIS 6,766 (as of Jan 01, 2023).
The right of a widow/er to receive monthly payments expires when s/he remarries. At that point, s/he shall receive a grant at two rates:
A widow who has remarried shall be entitled to continue to receive monthly dependents’ benefits, if one of the following conditions applies to her:
A widow/er who was eligible for a one-time grant when s/he remarried, who then divorced (or began divorce proceedings) or was widowed again within 10 years of his/her second marriage – shall be paid a monthly benefit from the day the marriage ended. The grant paid to him/her or its first rate will be deducted from the benefit s/he is due, unless s/he is eligible for dependents’ benefits due to the death of his/her most recent spouse.
A Bat Mitzvah Grant is paid to a girl when she reaches 12 years of age and to a boy when he reaches 13 years of age. The rate of the grant is 2/3 of the average wage NIS 6,409 (as of Jan 01, 2023).
Upon the death of the person who had received the dependants’ benefits, his/her child (as defined by law) shall be paid a one-time grant of NIS 9,613 (as of Jan 01, 2023).
