If the disability stems from common illness:
The beneficiary has active contributor, assimilated contributor status or "non-contributor" status:
It is calculated by applying all the rules specified for total permanent disability arising from common diseases.
If the disability is caused by a non work-related injury:
Beneficiary on active or assimilated contributor status:
It is calculated by applying the rules specified for total permanent disability arising from non work-related injuries.
The beneficiary has "non-contributor" status:
It is the result obtained from dividing the interested party's contribution bases during the 96 months immediately prior to the month before the triggering event by 112. The calculation of these bases will be performed in accordance with the following rules:
The bases for the 24 months prior to the triggering event are calculated using their nominal value.
The remaining bases are updated in accordance with the development of the Consumer Price Index (CPI), from the month to which they correspond up to the month immediately prior to the month when the period of non-updatable bases described in the foregoing paragraph begins.
If during the period to be counted for the calculation there are months in which the worker had no obligation to make contributions, these contribution gaps will be filled in using the minimum contribution base in force at any given time for workers over 18 years of age. If during any month, the obligation to make contributions is limited to just a portion of the month, the filling in of gaps outlined in the previous paragraph will apply only to the portion of the month in which there was no obligation to make contributions, as long as the contribution base that corresponds to the contributory period does not reach amount of the established minimum base. In such a case, gaps will only be filled until this latter amount is reached.
In the case of workers included in the Special System for Domestic Employees,, from 2012 to 2018, only effective contribution periods will be taken into account for the calculation of the RB of the permanent disability pension arising from common contingencies (filling in of gaps will not apply).
In the case of workersincluded in the Special System for Agricultural Employees, as of 01/01/2012, only effective contribution periods will be taken into account for the calculation of the RB (filling in of gaps will not apply).
In the case of workers on part-time, relief and permanent-intermittent contracts:
The filling in of periods, during which there was no obligation to make contributions, will be done using the minimum applicable contribution base at any given time, for the number of contracted hours on the date on which the obligation to make contributions was suspended or came to an end. If there was only an obligation to make contributions for a portion of the month, the filling in will only apply to the period of the month in which there was no obligation to make contributions, as long as the corresponding contribution base does not reach the applicable minimum base.
With the exception of the periods between seasons or campaigns for workers with intermittent contracts, under no circumstances will the gaps in contribution be considered as the hours or days not worked because of the interruptions in rendering services resulting from the part time contract itself.
If the disability is caused by employment injury or occupational illness:
The regulatory base is calculated using actual salaries, by applying the rules specified for total permanent disability arising from these contingencies.
