Retroactive granting of a welfare allowance to a child with severe disabilities

Retroactive granting of a welfare allowance to a child with severe disabilities

Description

Municipal social service, in agreement with the parents of a child suffering from severe disability, sought the assistance of the Ombudsman to resume the child’s disability allowance, after it had been discontinued for a long period without the beneficiary’s fault. In the course of the investigation, there was a shift in attitude on behalf of the State Agency and the child’s guardian submitted a supplementary complaint due to subsequent conflict of interest. After repeated interventions by the Ombudsman to the agencies involved, the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Social Solidarity adopted the positions of the Independent Authority and the social service was given instructions to grant the allowance retroactively, also covering the period of the child’s transfer from the centre.
