The governments of Israel and Germany agree that Berlin will allocate an extra NIS 20 million ($6.25 million) per year to add to the monthly stipends some 3,700 Holocaust survivors receive from Germany.

This will increase each stipend by 100 euros per month.

Those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease will get an annual payment of 500 euros in addition to the monthly stipends.
