As stimulus checks advanced, state lacks bank account info for nearly 2 million

The National Insurance Institute says it doesn’t have the bank account information for 1.75 million Israelis to dispense the government’s stimulus grants.

The NII says it’s working to locate and verify the accounts. Those who aren’t in the system will be able to receive a check at the post office, it adds.

The stimulus grants were approved earlier by the cabinet and must still receive the Knesset’s backing before the money is distributed.
