Granting disability allowance to prisoners

Granting disability allowance to prisoners

Description

The Ombudsman’s standing position that detainees should not be excluded from grave disability allowance, provided that the remaining legal conditions are met, has been accepted by the administration. A recent circular by the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Social Solidarity has upheld the persistent interventions of the Independent Authority, recognising that deprivation of liberty does not constitute an obstacle to the granting of disability allowances, since detention facilities do not meet the personalised needs arising from disability and therefore the social purpose of the allowance is not cancelled.
