People with disabilities

print

Disability is the loss of or an abnormality in an anatomical, physiological or mental structure or function of a person which in conjunction with different relational and environmental restrictions prevents participation in social life on equal bases with the others.

The state pays social benefits to disabled persons if they have additional expenses because of their disability, e.g. they are in need of assistance, care or medical rehabilitation, or the additional expenses are related to transport, employment or studies.

The aim of granting social benefits to disabled persons is to support the ability of disabled persons to cope independently, social integration and equal opportunities through partial compensation for the additional expenses caused by the disability.

The aim of social welfare is to provide assistance to disabled persons and their families to prevent, eliminate or ease difficulties in coping and contribute to the social security, development and integration into society of disabled persons.
