Payment of a grant in 2021 to disability pension recipients

We are glad to announce that the National Insurance Institute will pay a one-time grant for year 2021 to beneficiaries of a disability pension.

Important information!

  1. Those receiving more than one allowance - will receive multiple grants, depending on the number of allowances they receive.
    For instance: those who receive a general disability pension and an attendance allowance or those receiving an old-age pension with disability increment and an attendance allowance - will receive two grants, one for each allowance.
  2. A disabled individual who is institutionalized, for whom the institution receives a benefit - will not receive a grant for the months spent in the institution.

When will the grant be paid?

The grant will be paid automatically in two times: First time on March 11, 2021, and the second time in June 2021.

Grant amount

The grant is calculated according to the number of disability pensions you were paid for the months of January to June 2021, and the degree of disability established for you. In other words, each month you received a disability pension entitles you to a grant for that month, depending on the allowance you were paid.

Amount of the grant based on degree of incapacity you were granted:
