This portal explains the different stages in filing a disability claim, as well as the different rights and benefits given to those who receive a disability benefit.

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%. Eligibility for the Disability Pension is also meant to give benefits in other various realms such as housing, transportation and health.

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.
