THE RIGHT TO CASH COMPENSATION FOR BODY IMPAIRMENT

Body impairment exists when there is a loss, a significant impairment or a significant disablement of certain organs or body parts of the insured person, which impedes normal body activity and requires more effort in meeting the needs of everyday life.

An insured person becomes eligible for the cash compensation for body impairment if the impairment is caused by work injury or occupational disease and amounts to at least 30%.

Body impairments are classified according to their severity and can be determined in percentage from 100% at the most to 30% at the least.

Body impairments are determined by the Rulebook on determining body impairments, which can be found at the following link: http://www.zso.gov.rs/domaci-propisi-pio.htm

The amount of cash compensation for body impairment, depending on the percentage of body impairment, is determined on the basis established by the regulations that applied until April 9, 2003, and it is adjusted in the same way as pensions.

Cash compensation for body impairment is to be paid as of the day of appearance of body impairment, but maximum for the period of six months prior to the day of submitting the application, is cases of body impairment having existed before.

The right to cash compensation for body impairment is exercised with the Republic Fund for Pension and Disability Insurance.

Requests, or forms regarding the exercise of the right to a cash compensation for body impairment, as well as information on the documentation that must be attached to the request, can be found at the following link:
