To qualify for Partial Capacity Benefit you need to be in receipt of either:

  • Illness Benefit (for a minimum of 6 months),
  • Invalidity Pension.

A Medical Assessor of the Department will assess the restriction on your capacity for work. This may require you to attend a medical assessment. You should include all appropriate medical evidence with your application. You will qualify for Partial Capacity Benefit if your restriction on capacity for work is assessed as moderate, severe, or profound. If it is assessed as mild you will not qualify for payment of Partial Capacity Benefit. If you qualify for Partial Capacity Benefit, you will not be required to send in medical certificates.
