Disability pension

If your ability to work has been reduced for at least one year due to an illness and you are under 63 years of age, you can apply for disability pension.

Disability pension can be paid

  • as full disability pension if your ability to work has been reduced by at least 3/5.
  • as partial disability pension if your ability to work has been reduced by at least 2/5.
  • as rehabilitation allowance, i.e. temporary disability pension, if your ability to work is estimated to recover with the help of treatment or rehabilitation.

    Before making a decision on disability pension, we must investigate your rights to retirement rehabilitation and ensure that your opportunities for rehabilitation in accordance with other legislation have been examined.

    If you are applying for disability pension, your ability to work will be evaluated, taking into account your remaining ability to earn income with the type of available work you can reasonably be required to perform. In this situation, the following aspects will also be taken into consideration:
  • your education and training
  • your previous functions
  • your age
  • your place of residence

    and other corresponding aspects. If you are aged 60 or older, your ability to work will be evaluated particularly from the perspective of your own profession.
