Pensions, Insurance & Everyday Investments

Your pension accounts for approximately 25% of all the money you make over the course of your life and the lion’s share of your insurance.  Speaking of insurance, do you understand the kind of insurance your have?  Are you unsure if you’re being taken advantage of by your agent but don’t even know what to ask.

The articles below are designed to explain the pension system, insurance system and everyday investments of the average Israeli in simple English.

Note: I am redoing the series (again) in order to give a more exact and thorough overview of the pension system.  The titles below in black are articles I am working on and should be published within the next few months.
