What are Special Benefits?

These are cash benefits, granted during times and situations of need arising as a result of a work-related accident or a work-related illness.

They are financed through the budget approved by the Ministry of Employment and Social Security and paid by the Social Welfare Fund generated by the Mutual Society.

Who can apply for this financial aid?

The following people may be considered beneficiaries of the special benefits:

  • The worker, for damages suffered as a result of a work-related accident or a work-related illness.
  • The spouse or the common-law partner of the worker even in cases where they do not have inheritance rights of the deceased worker and the children of the worker. In both cases, they must live in the same household as the worker.
  • In the absence of the previous: grandchildren; and, in the absence of these, parents. In both cases, they must live in the same household as the worker.
