Disability allowance and 3 things to consider for pension and theoretical contributions
The first relates to the regular disability allowance which, according to Law 224/1984, accrual periods are useful if they are not covered by work activity. In order to receive a normal disability allowance, a worker must have had at least 5 years of contributions. Of which at least 3 were paid in the last 5 years prior to application. However, this facilitation The contribution is attributed only to the employees. Self-employed workers are excluded.
After that, periods of disability covered by default contributions are beneficial to the right to a pension. But it is not useful in determining the amount of the pension. For example, a disabled worker who has been receiving a disability benefit for three years and has received 17 years of employment contributions. The right to an old-age pension is earned with 20-year contributions (17 + 3 theoretical contributions). But the allowance is calculated on 17 years of contributions. Hence, theoretical contributions are not helpful in increasing the pension allowance.
