To get young adults with reduced work capacity empowered To get young adults with reduced work capacity empowered

Full Description



Disability pension for young adults is a time-limited form of benefit for young adults with a long-term reduction in work capacity. A prerequisite is that this reduction in work capacity can be expected to last for at least one year. The benefit can be granted at the earliest from the July of the year in which the individual turns 19, up until the month before the month the person turns 30. A period of disability pension may not cover more than three years at a time. But it is possible to apply for a new period when the previous one comes to an end. Despite the disability pension being a time-limited benefit, many young adults continue to receive the benefit until they turn 30.

When the individual is no longer entitled to disability pension, they are able to apply for sickness compensation. The purpose of the disability pension – beyond providing financial security in the event of reduced work capacity – is to encourage young people to be involved in activities during the period in which they receive the benefit. The idea is that the activities will have a positive impact on the person’s functional ability and improve work capacity.

Few studies have been conducted into the activities carried out within the scope of the disability pension. This means there is a lack of knowledge about what activities are offered and if the activities meet the intentions. A previous study has, however, revealed that comparatively few people participate in activities.

Despite this, there may still be individuals for whom sickness compensation could be avoided, at least to a certain extent, with more activities during the period in which they receive disability pension. The study showed that the activities do not, to a sufficient extent, lead to young adults approaching the labour market.

The difference between systems for disability pension and those for sickness compensation means that it is possible for people who have been on disability pension for 10 years, without any form of activity that could promote improved work capacity, to be deemed entitled to sickness compensation regardless of this.
