Before your Injury Benefit payment finishes, you should apply for Disablement Benefit if the accident or disease, causes you to lose any physical or mental abilities.

Important:
You should apply within 3 months of the date of your accident or the onset of the disease. If you do not apply in time you may lose some benefit.
