Regular reporting on the domestic worker’s work and payment of insurance contributions on his/her behalf

Reporting and payment dates

The employer must report regularly on the worker, and pay insurance contributions on his or her behalf four times a year on the following dates:
  1. April 20 – for the months of January-March preceding the reporting date
  2. July 20 – for the months of April-June preceding the reporting date
  3. October 20 – for the months of July-September preceding the reporting date
  4. January 20 – for the months of October-December preceding the reporting date.

How to report and pay for the worker?

Reporting and payment can be performed by one of the following ways:
  • Payments website
    Tenants’ committees, prayer houses (employing up to 2 workers), as well as employers who are not Israeli residents - can report and pay for their domestic workers through the payments website, only by means of a booklet identifying number.
  • By means of a special voucher booklet for reporting and payment - sent to the employer by mail at the beginning of the year. Reporting and payment instructions are included in the booklet.

Reporting method

The employer is liable to disclose on each report the following information:

  • All personal details of the domestic worker: first name, surname, year of birth and Israeli Identity Card number. If you file a report without the domestic worker’s personal details, it will be considered as if you have not filed a report at all.
    Please note, failure to record the domestic worker’s personal details or an incorrect recording of those details may undermine the domestic worker’s rights towards the National Insurance Institute, even if you paid insurance contributions on his or her behalf. In addition, if an event should arise that entitles the domestic worker to a benefit from the National Insurance Institute and if, when that event occurred, you did not register him or her properly as required by law or you did not pay his or her insurance contributions on time, the NII is authorized to demand from you the cash value of the benefits paid to the domestic worker as a result of that event, in addition to his or her insurance contributions.
  • Detail in each report: the number of employment hours, the number of workdays, and the wages for each of the months reported.
    You must also indicate what kind of work was performed and on which days it was performed.

Important information!

  • A person in children care or babysitting at his own home, and meet the definition of self-employed - has the obligation to open file and report on himself.
  • If the employer have begun to employ new domestic workers or they are no longer working for him - he must record in your report the personal details of all domestic workers who have worked for any period of time during the period you are reporting.
    You must file a separate report for each domestic worker. The booklet contains a spare voucher that you can use for an additional domestic worker for one quarter of the year.
  • If the employer ceased employing the domestic worker - he must report the termination of employment to the Employer Collection Department of the NII branch handling his file.
