National Insurance Demands Refund from Disabled

The Bituach Leumi (National Insurance Institute) made a mistake and is demanding retroactive repayment from the families of 300 disabled people, according to a Monday report by Israel Defense Forces Radio.

As a result of a recent computer upgrade, it became apparent that the disabled received increased benefits without knowing about them, according to the report, which says the excesses ran between the low thousands and 300,000 shekels.
