Termination / Incompatibilities




Financial awards are terminated due to:

  • The death of the originator. If the person who dies is the beneficiary, the entitlement will be transferred to the surviving parent, if the originator is in the care of said surviving parent.

  • Reaching the age of 18, except when the originator has a degree of disability greater than or equal to 65%.

  • The disappearance or elimination of the disability due to the recovery of the originator.

  • When the originator ceases to be financially dependent on the beneficiary.

  • Exceeding, during the previous year, the legally established income limits  for keeping the entitlement.

  1. When both parents or adoptive parents or, where applicable, foster parents meet the circumstances required to be named beneficiaries of family related benefits, the right to receive the benefit will only be granted to one party.

  2. Family benefits cannot be received by both parents or adoptive parents or, where applicable, foster parents in conjunction with any other similar benefit provided for in other state social security schemes.

    In the event that one of the parents or adoptive parents is included, by virtue of their job or pensioner status, in a state social security scheme, the relevant benefit will be granted by said scheme, provided that this person meets the necessary requirements for being a beneficiary of said scheme.

    If both beneficiaries are entitled to receive the same benefit for the same causing subject in more than one social security scheme, they must opt for just one of these schemes.

  3. Receiving financial allowances for a dependent disabled child aged over 18, is incompatible with said child having a non-contributory retirement or disability pensioner status and being a beneficiary of the welfare pensions regulated by Law 45/1960 of 21 July, or third-party assistance and minimum income guarantee benefits referred to in the sole transitional provision of the Revised General Law on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and their Inclusion in Society, approved by Royal Legislative Decree 1/2013, of 29 November.

    In the foregoing cases, only one of the incompatible benefits must be selected. If the beneficiaries of the incompatible benefits are different, the option will be chosen by prior mutual agreement. If no agreement is reached, the right to the non-contributory disability or retirement pension or, where appropriate, the pension regulated by Act 45/1960, or the third-party assistance and minimum income guarantee benefits referred to in the sole transitional provision of the Revised General Law on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and their Inclusion in Society, approved by Royal Legislative Decree 1/2013, of 29 November, will prevail.
