How long does it take for sickness benefit to become retirement?

Retirement is a dream for thousands of Brazilians who have worked their whole lives, and many times this benefit is acquired due to disability, as unfortunately some people suffer some kind of limitation, and end up resorting to this option due to an illness. With sick pay, a benefit for those who need to leave their job for health reasons, many question how they can be transforming it into retirement.

What this article covers:

Who is entitled to request review of sick pay for retirement?

In order for the individual receiving sick pay to apply for retirement, he must prove that he is no longer able to perform his work duties. For this, exams are carried out in order to prove this impossibility, and only then can the procedures for retirement begin.

However, many times this conversion is not carried out, and the beneficiary ends up receiving the sickness benefit for more than 10 years, which requires an intervention by a lawyer so that it can be converted.

How does the conversion of sickness benefit to retirement work?

In most cases, the conversion is carried out through legal means, with a lawyer taking action, in order to carry out the tests that prove the person’s inability to work.

For this, the applicant is evaluated by medical experts from the INSS itself, in order to have the verification of this incapacity in question.

This request can be made directly with the INSS, with a simple request with reference to the person’s number, and when this happens, the agency schedules the medical evaluation.

There is no stipulated minimum time for it to be converted into retirement. Most of the times it is requested when the individual already has the knowledge that he is no longer able to perform his work duties. With that he ends up trying to convert the benefit since he has knowledge of such a problem.

O INSS helps thousands of people every year so they can keep their lives after they stop working. This means that many people who benefit from sickness benefit request this action, and can be more relaxed about receiving the amounts.
