Bituach Leumi Not Able to Collect Debt from Departed's Family

The Knesset plenum today (Monday) approved the second and third readings of a bill which would disallow Bituach Leumi (National Insurance) from collecting a debt owed by a deceased person from his family members.

The bill is designed so that qualified employees of Bituach Leumi can exercise their judgment as to whether or not to demand fees be paid that may be owed to the institution by a deceased person.
