The disability pension is a benefit that you receive when you become permanently incapacitated for work. The amount of the disability pension that can be awarded equals the senior’s pension amount that you would have received if you were able to work until your retirement age.
The Board of APS decides whether you will receive a disability pension. This decision is taken based on a medical examination by a medical committee consisting of three independent medical doctors appointed by the Board. After you are awarded disability pension, it is possible that you are re-examined for your diagnosed disability.
