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.

The National Insurance pays recipients of disability or old-age
pension a supplement for children to their pension.
When the child is under the custody of either a parent who is not
recipient of the pension or someone else, the parent or the person having
custody of the child may request to receive the supplement for a child.
Under certain circumstances, the child himself can also request to
receive the supplement.
