Disability pension

If you need to be away from work due to illness your will initially receive sick pay from your employer. If you are away for more than two weeks you will receive sickness benefit from the Social Insurance Office. If you are away for a longer period, and are over 18, you will receive extra compensation called a disability pension. This is included in your ITP occupational pension and depends on how much you earn.

To be entitled to a disability pension from ITP, you should:

1. be over 18 and have ITP
2. be at least 25% sick listed
3. Have been on the sick list for more than 90 consecutive days or
have been on the sick list for more than 105 days in different period over the last 12 months
4. be receiving sickness compensation or activity compensation from the Social Insurance Office.

If you become ill your ITP functions exactly as before

If you are ill for a long period, premium payments will not cease for your ITP. Payments will be made exactly as before, which means that your ITP retirement pension will increase exactly as they would if you were working.

This is how disability pension is calculated

Applies from 1 January 2015 if you have an ITP occupational pension.
