A General Disability Pension is a monthly benefit paid by the National Insurance Institute to those whose physical, mental or psychological impairments affect their ability to earn a living (or the ability of a housewife to function in the household) by at least 50%.

The degree of incapacity is established after a medical committee establishes the degree of medical disability in accordance with the official list of disorders and illnesses for medical examinations.
