With the pension adjustment, the exorbitant price increase this year has now been mitigated.

In addition, people who receive a

disability pension

should also receive the subsidy.

For health reasons, they are no longer able to work.

A pension should therefore replace the income in the event of a full reduction in earning capacity, as reported by the

German pension insurance

.

If you can still work a few hours a day, the pension due to a partial reduction in earning capacity supplements the respective income.

However, it is also important that the point in time is still

below the regular retirement age

lies.

It is then checked whether there are or need measures to help the person concerned to earn their living again.

Below:

  • medical rehabilitation

  • professional rehabilitation or reintegration

If both are not possible, an assessment is made of how much work the affected person can still do.

In concrete terms, this means whether you will receive a

pension due to a full or partial reduction in earning capacity

.

In addition,

other requirements

must be met.

This includes:

  • You must be insured with the German pension insurance for at least five years before the onset of the reduction in earning capacity.

  • You must have paid compulsory contributions to the pension insurance for at least three years in the last five years before the onset of the reduction in earning capacity (e.g. in an employment relationship).

Disability pension: More money up to and including 2024

If you meet all the conditions and receive a disability pension, you are also entitled to the Corona subsidy.

According to this, Federal Labor Minister Hubertus Heil (49, SPD) is said to have explained the following to the

editorial network Germany

: "With the surcharge for the disability pension, we are making it clear: Even in these times, we are on the side of those who

can no longer work

due to illness or an accident

. Around three million people are affected in this country.

Heil has also announced that recipients of disability pensions will receive an additional

7.5 percent

from July 1, 2024

.

All those who entered the disability pension between January 1, 2001 and June 30, 2014 receive the subsidy.

For the state, this means that in 2024 it will have to raise around 1.3 billion euros more for additional pension expenditure.

In the following year it should be double, after that the additional expenditure will decrease again, it concludes.
