In the event of impaired ability to work and loss of income due to disability, fund members may be entitled to rehabilitation or disability pensions. For this to be the case, the disability must be assessed as being 50% or more for at least six months. The payments are income linked.
The pensions are paid for a specific period according to the assessment of a physician. If the disability is not permanent, it must be re-evaluated on a regular basis. If the disability is permanent, the disability pension is converted to old age pension at the age of 67.
