The staff in the legal clinic in MSD succeeded to obtain a 100% disability for a young Jerusalemite woman. In 12, June 2016, the youth’s father came to our legal clinic to apply an application for disability allowance for his daughter, and after he met the lawyer and gave him all the necessary papers, the application was handed to the national insurance.
After waiting for more than 2 and a half months, in 28, August 2016 the legal clinic received a letter from the national insurance stating that this request was rejected. Then the lawyer connected with the father of the youth and told him that he should bring another medical report from a specialist doctor describing her condition, but the father couldn’t get this report. However, although the success rate was very low without the requested report, the lawyer didn’t give up and sent another application with the same papers and reports, asking the national insurance to re-review this case because of the bad health condition of the youth.
More than two months later, the national insurance was set an appointment to meet the medical committee, and the exceptional lawyer’s request was accepted, the youth was granted a 50% disability, and 100% inability to work, and 13890 shekels as a deficit allowance retroactively, and a monthly income about 2594 shekels.
