Rights & COVID-19: People with Disabilities
Along with the Clinic for Human Rights in Society at the University of Haifa, contacted the supervisor of the Postal Bank and the Minister of Communications demanding that Postal Bank services be adapted to receive customers, especially those receiving welfare (including disability) benefits (26-03-2020).
Joined a letter with Bizchut to the Ministry of Social Affairs and Social Services, after which the Ministry responded that they will prepare to treat people with disabilities during the Corona crisis (30-03-2020).
Appealed twice to the National Insurance Institute following their decision to postpone all medical appeal committees to an unknown date, and their refusal to accept our request for a less harmful arrangement. This decision stops many people from being able to receive their disability benefits (05-04-2020).
