A Guide to your Golden Years in Israel

As a retiree in Israel you are entitled to many government discounts and rights and many businesses and non-governmental entities offer discounts as well. Since there is no umbrella organization that provides that information, if you didn’t grow up in Israel or raise a family in Israel, you may be unaware of the benefits for retirees. 

This free guide informs you of many of the advantages to being retired that will help enhance your lifestyle during your senior years in Israel.

Aging With Dignity – An overview of Israel’s Continuing Power of Attorney

Israel’s seniors and their families are disproportionately involved in legal battles regarding guardianship compared with countries with a much larger elderly population.
