You are older than 18 and have a permanent disability which makes you incapable of working. You should know that the Law on Pension Schemes financed by the State guarantees the right to a pension. You need to apply for the pension at the Department of Pension Administration within the Ministry of Labour and Social welfare where a Medical Commission will verify your physical condition. You will not be eligible for a disability pension if you or are part of any other scheme of social assistance.
You need to submit an application for disability pension at the Department of Pension Administration in your municipality/region. Ensure accurate information on where the location of this office is. You will be required to submit a set of documents verifying your personal identity and your medical condition. Your condition will then be verified by a Doctors’ Committee.
If you feel that no accurate assessment of your health situation have been done and you were denied your disability pension, you can file an appeal with the Appeals Commission within the Department of Pension Administration. The appeal needs to be filed within 14 days from the day when you received your initial decision by the Department of Pension Administration. If you receive no response from the DPA, you can always address the matter at a competent court.
