Injury Benefit is normally paid from the 7th day of your illness or incapacity, and you may be paid for up to 26 weeks after your accident or contracting a prescribed disease.
If you are still unable to work after 26 weeks, you may qualify for Illness Benefit if you satisfy certain PRSI contribution conditions.

You may also qualify for Disablement Benefit if you suffer a loss of physical or mental ability because of the accident or disease. See Section 9.
If you do not qualify for Illness Benefit and you are awarded Disablement Benefit, you may qualify for Incapacity Supplement.
