Atzmai (self-employed) contributions for 2021

As of 2017, Atzmaim (self-employed) are obligated to make pension contributions. In addition, they are entitled to other social benefits such as Keren Histalmut. The breakdown of contributions for the 2021 tax year can be found below.

Pension Contributions

How much am I obligated to contribute?

The income upon which one is obligated to contribute is split into 3 tiers. All of which are based on the Schar Memutza BaMesheq – שכר ממוצע במשק. This is the defined ‘average’ gross salary in Israel. The average gross salary for 2021 is 10,551 NIS (as publicized by Bituach Leumi).

The 3 tiers are:

    1. Half the Schar Memutza BaMesheq.
    2. The 2nd half of the Schar Memutza BaMesheq.
    3. Anything above the Schar Memutza BaMesheq.


Average monthly income
(based on January 2020 data)
Minimum legal contribution (%) Minimum Legal Contribution (NIS)
0 NIS – 5,275 NIS 4.45% of the average monthly income Up to 235 NIS per month (based on 5,275 NIS x 4.45%)
5,275 NIS – 10,551 NIS 4.45 % of income up to  5,275 NIS, and 12.55% of income earned above 5,275 NIS Up to 897 NIS per month (based on 5,275 NIS x 4.45% and 5,275 NIS x 12.55%)
Above 10,551 NIS 8.5% of 10,551 NIS 897 NIS per month


Can I contribute more than the legal obligatory pension?

Yes. The amounts stipulated above are minimum contributions. For the 2021 tax year, the upper limit for tax benefits based on pension contributions for an Atzmai is 16.5% of a monthly income of 17,400 NIS (208,800 NIS annually). By contributing more than the minimum obligation, one can benefit from increased tax benefits and a larger future pension.

Keren Hishtalmut

An Atzmai has the ability to open up a Keren Hishtalmut based on 7% of their income. The tax year in Israel runs from 1st January to 31st December. The upper annual limit for total contributions into the Keren Hishtalmut for 2021 is 18,480 NIS. Contributions equating to the first 4.5% of one’s annual income up to 263,000 NIS is considered a tax deductible expense.
