Long-Term Care Benefit recipients are entitled to a 70% discount on municipal property tax (arnona) for their home.

Who is Eligible?

How to Claim It?

  • The discount should be given automatically by the local authority, which receives a list of eligible Long-Term Care Benefit recipients from the National Insurance Institute at the end of every year.
  • If a Long-Term Care Benefit has been approved after a municipal property tax (arnona) bill has already been sent, the recipient may present the National Insurance Institute approval to the local authority's treasury department. (If this approval is not submitted, the recipient will have to wait until the formal list of eligible Long-Term Care Benefit recipients is sent to the local authority at the end of the year.)
  • Retroactive discounts may be given in some of the local authorities in accordance to the regulations of the specific local authority.

Please Note

  • If a Long-Term Care Benefit is only approved for a few months, it is important to present this approval to the local authority in order to ensure that the discount is claimed for those months.
