New law increases benefits for 6,000 Holocaust survivors

A law increasing state benefits for Holocaust survivors receiving guaranteed monthly income passed a final vote in the Knesset on Monday night.

There are approximately 15,000 Holocaust survivors who arrived in Israel after 1953, and receive 960 Euros per quarter from Germany. Of those, 6,000 receive a guaranteed monthly income of NIS 2,200 from the government, among other benefits, but the sum from Germany is subtracted from it.
