How much can I get?

Print page

Your payment depends on the degree of your disablement, which a doctor assesses.

If you have lost less than one fifth of your physical or mental abilities, Disablement Benefit will normally be paid by a lump sum. The size of the lump sum will vary according to the degree of disablement and how long you are expected to be disabled.

You may get Disablement Pension if a doctor verifies that you have lost one fifth or more of your physical or mental ability. If the loss of physical or mental ability falls between 10% and 19%, you will be given a choice between a once off lump sum and a small weekly pension. The maximum rates of Disablement Benefit are shown in the Rates of Payments booklet SW 19.
