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.

Many organizations apply to the Fund for Demonstration Projects for assistance, and there is strong competition for public sources of financing. Only a small share of the applications that are submitted are approved.
Preference is given to the following types of projects:
Projects for at-risk populations and populations in distress.
Projects offering new services not presently available (for example, Beit Noam – a new direction for violent men).
Projects aimed at improving the functioning of populations in a way not attempted in the past.
Projects that can be evaluated by a research evaluation.
Projects providing integrated services, as opposed to a service in one field only.
Projects in which there are partners in funding.
Projects which, if successful, the organization commits itself to continue after the experimental period.
Projects which offer training to workers, if as a result of this training a new service will be developed (such as Mothers for Mothers).
