What are the main conditions for benefit?

Print page

You may qualify for benefit if:

  • you are suffering from certain prescribed diseases,
  • you have been employed on or after 1 May 1967 in one of the occupations linked to that disease, (see Note 2 below)
  • the disease results from the nature of your employment.

Note 1

If you satisfy the first two conditions above, you usually also satisfy the remaining condition.

Note 2

If your occupation is not linked to a prescribed disease (other than deafness) but if you can produce evidence to show that the disease was developed due to your employment, you may also qualify for benefit.
