Who is eligible for a disability pension? How do you get it? And what benefits does it include?

A General Disability Pension is a monthly benefit paid by the National Insurance Institute to those whose physical, intellectual 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%. Eligibility for the Disability Pension also grants benefits in other areas such as housing, transportation and health.
