Invalidity benefit

Workers should be protected in the case of inability to engage in any gainful activity that is likely to be permanent or that persists after the exhaustion of sickness benefits. The benefit should be a periodic payment guaranteed to protect a person who has completed a qualifying period of contribution or employment. A reduced payment may be paid in other cases.
