National Insurance Institute has NIS 1.5b to give away

Over NIS 1.5b in National Insurance Institute payments remain unclaimed, leading Knesset State Control Committee chairwoman Karin Elharar (Yesh Atid) to call on Monday for the NII to better inform those who are entitled.

“The public has to get the money it deserves and that is the NII’s full responsibility,” Elharar said at a meeting she called to discuss the unclaimed funds. “The NII must initiate contact with those entitled and not wait for them.”

The poorest populations who need the NII’s help most are least likely to exercise their rights, Elharar pointed out.
