Description:
Sickness and disability payments make up over 10% of total social welfare expenditure. Over 100.000 people receive income maintenance payments relating to sickness and disability. In this context information about the entitlements of people to sickness and disability payments is clearly essential. This is particularly important in view of the recommendations set out in the recent report of the Commission on the Status of People with Disabilities. This guide focuses on the range of sickness and disability payments which are available from public bodies. primarily the Department of Social Welfare and. to a lesser extent. the Department of Health. It looks both at income maintenance payments. such as disability benefit. invalidity pension and the new disability allowance. and also at a range of other payments which may be of relevance to people who are sick or who have disabilities. In Part I we look at disability benefit. In Part II. we examine the range of benefits available to persons affected by occupational injuries. Part III looks at payments in the case of long-term disability while Part IV looks at payments specifically for blind persons. Part V considers the range of payments available in relation to the provision of care including the carer's allowance. domiciliary care allowance and nursing home subventions. Finally. Part VI looks at the treatment benefit scheme operated by the Department of Social Welfare and at the diet and heating supplements available under the supplementary welfare allowance.
