Administrative service description

A degree of special needs is established for an indefinite period of time after reaching a retirement age for an individual for whom a working capacity level was established before he / she has reached a retirement age:

  • if a working capacity of 0-30 % was established, a degree of significant special needs shall be established for such individual;
  • if a working capacity of 35-55 % was established, a degree of average special needs shall be established for such individual.

The period of a degree of special needs begins to run from the day when the individual reaches retirement age.

The degrees of special needs that are listed below can be established for an individual for whom special needs were established after the individual has reached a retirement age until 31 December 2018, but their degrees were not established:

  • a degree of significant special needs – in cases where a special need of permanent nursing or a special need for a permanent care (assistance) has been established;
  • a degree of average special needs - in cases where a special need for the compensation of costs of acquisition of a passenger car and its technical adaptation has been established;
  • a degree of low special needs – in cases where a special need for the compensation of transport costs has been established.

If an individual for whom a degree of special needs has been established in accordance with this procedure applies for the establishment of special needs, a degree of special needs shall not be repeatedly established for this applicant, except when a higher degree of special needs can be established through the establishment of special needs.

If a representative of an individual applies on behalf of the latter, the representative must specify his / her forename, surname, place of residence in an application and must enclose a documentary evidence of representation, must also specify particulars of an individual represented such as his / her forename, surname, place of residence and sign an application.
