Permanent disability pensions do not always last forever. Due to examinations by the medical tribunal or improvements in the health of the worker, it may happen that absolute or total disability is replaced by partial disability or even by the absence of disability. This deprives the recipient of the allowance, if he or she does not work, of an essential source of income.
For these situations, the State Public Employment Service (SEPE) provides a benefit that can help the person who has suffered the loss of their permanent disability pension.
The agency explains on its website that âthis subsidy can be received by workers declared fully capable or unfit to the degree of permanent partial disability following a review file for improvement of a situation of severe disability, d absolute or total permanent incapacity. for the usual profession â.
Although the loss or reduction of permanent disability is an inexcusable condition for benefiting from this subsidy, the SEPE obliges the citizen to fulfill several other conditions in order to be able to receive the assistance. They are explained on their website and are as follows:
-Register as a job seeker in the month following the file which modified or removed the permanent incapacity.
– Do not reject suitable job offers or refuse to participate (unless there is just cause) in promotional, training or professional retraining actions upon registration as a jobseeker.
– No monthly income greater than 75% of the Minimum Interprofessional Salary (SMI), excluding the proportional part of two extraordinary payments. If this condition is not met but is met throughout the year, you can apply for the grant as long as the other conditions are maintained.
The SEPE informs that to receive this subsidy, the conditions must be met at all times, including the extensions authorized by the regulations. He also explains that, if the person were entitled to the allowance for persons over 52 years old, he would receive it and not the allowance for loss of permanent incapacity.
What is its amount and when does it last
The amount of the subsidy is 80% of the Public Indicator of Multiple Effects Income (Iprem), i.e. 451.92 euros per month which will be paid into the beneficiary’s bank account between the 10th and the 15th of each month.
The grant can be received initially for a period of six months, but after this period up to two extensions can be requested, so that in the best case the grant can be extended up to a total of 18 months.
