Employee Benefits in Israel

Synopsis

Israel has a well-established social security system that provides a series of means-tested benefits and grants to people who require financial assistance. The system encompasses income-transfer programs administered by the National insurance institute and other government ministries that provide a safeguard for persons and their dependents with inadequate sources of income, or those facing unforeseen expenses. Programs are intended to reduce poverty, provide citizens with an acceptable standard of living and support children and the unemployed. The National Insurance covers all citizens, permanent residents and Jewish immigrants.
