Financial benefits for Holocaust survivors’ 2012 medical needs were suspended on Thursday by the Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims in Israel due to an overflow of requests and a shortage in the allocated budget.

The sum, which is about NIS 4,000, is meant to retroactively reimburse survivors for the medical bills they had to pay during the year. This covers dental treatment, medical equipment, travel for oncological and dialysis treatments, eyeglasses and cardio-beeper services.

Eligible survivors, whose monthly income must not exceed NIS 8,158 (including benefits from abroad), are required to collect medical expenses receipts in order to receive the refund.
