Application Form for Invalidity Pension

Application Form for Invalidity Pension

Invalidity Pension is a weekly payment to people who cannot work because of a long-term illness or disability and are covered by social insurance (PRSI). At 66, you transfer to State Pension (Contributory) The higher Invalidity Pension rate of €230.30 per week that used to be paid when claimants reach age 65 was discontinued in 2014. The new rate payable to people aged 65 (and under) is €193.50 per week. This applies to people claiming Invalidity Pension who reach their 65th birthday from 2 January 2014. Existing 65 year olds are unaffected. This measure is being undertaken in line with the abolition of the State Pension (Transition) from 2 January 2014.
