Permanent Disability Pension Procedure
This is a financial benefit that seeks to cover the loss of income suffered by a worker whose ability to work is permanently reduced or impaired due to an illness or accident.
People included in any Social Security scheme that meet the requirements of the corresponding disability level.
Partial for the usual profession: It causes a reduction in performance of no less than 33% for this profession.
Total for the usual profession: Prevents the worker from carrying out his/her current profession, but he/she is still capable of working in another capacity.
Absolute for all work: Prevents the worker from performing any type of work or trade.
Serious disability: When the permanently disabled worker requires the assistance of another person to carry out the most basic activities.
Depending on the degree of disability, some general and contributory requirements apply. If the disability is the result of an accident, whether work-related or not, or an occupational disease, no previous contributions are required.
Determined by the base pension and the percentage applied according to the recognised level of permanent disability.
Partial permanent disability, consists of lump-sum compensation (24 monthly instalments of the base pension used to calculate the temporary disability).
Total permanent disability, 55% of the base pension. It will be increased by 20% after the worker is 55 years of age if, due to various circumstances, it is determined that it is difficult for the worker to find employment in a different profession from his usual one.
Absolute permanent disability, 100% of the base pension.
Serious disability, obtained by applying the percentage corresponding to total or absolute permanent disability, plus a supplement, to the base pension.
