Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon announced on Sunday that payments for disabled people in Israel would increase by NIS 4 billion within the next four to five years.
The current monthly pension for a disabled person in Israel is NIS 2,342. After the new budget is implemented, this amount will increase by 50%.
While this marks a significant increase, disability payments will still be far less than the Israeli minimum wage.
