Disability Employees' Pension
One may receive Disability Employees' Pension, when the person is recognized as disabled (Disability Grade 1-3) on the date of recognition of disability (1 year and 6 months after the first medical examination or the date when the symptoms have been stabilized), due to sickness or an injury for which the first medical examination was during a period of an Employees' Pension Insurance Insured Persons. Furthermore, people with Disability Grade 1 or Grade 2 will receive Disability Basic Pension from the National Pension.
Disability Employees' Pension will be paid also for an individual, if his/her symptoms did not meet Disability Grade 1, 2, or 3 requirements on the date of recognition of disability but worsen later to meet the requirements of any of the Grades and he/she requests to be paid by the day before reaching age 65.
