Benefits portal

Icelandic Health Insurance (IHI) has a benefits portal that keeps tracks of the benefits that each insured person is entitled to. The portal is a part of environment friendly operations that IHI cares a lot about. Main purpose is to give persons more information about their benefits status and also to reduce the use of paper and postal mail. IHI urges everyone to accept electronic communication in the benefits portal by registering their e-mail address. Those who do not accept paperless communications will continue to get postal mail from IHI.

How to log into the Benefits portal

You will need to have either electronic ID, or Ice-key (Íslykill). If you do not have an Ice-key you can apply for it, by entering your Icelandic ID number (kennitala) and the Ice-key will be sent to your online bank or by post to your legal residence. You will have to change the Ice-key after you use it for the first time into something you will remember.
