How to get a disability pension if you haven’t contributed enough

To receive a permanent disability pension, the hypothetical beneficiary is sometimes required to justify a level of contribution which, if not reached, obliges him to seek other alternatives. All, yes, within the framework of the protective action of Social Security.

In these cases, the agency plans to collect the non-contributory invalidity pensionwhich is granted to people who need financial assistance in a situation of certain disability but who, for whatever reason, have not been able to meet the contribution criteria required for permanent disability.

This problem can arise in workers whose disability is due to a common illness, a context in which prior contribution periods are required of workers and which depend on the type of degree of permanent disability that has been approved.

If it is impossible to meet these conditions, the worker may receive the non-contributory invalidity pension. On the IMSERSO website, this benefit is defined as that which “provides all citizens with disabilities and in a state of need with an economic benefit, free medical and pharmaceutical assistance and complementary social services, even if they do not have not contributed or have done so insufficiently to be entitled to a contributory pension.
