If the orphan has a disability of 33% or more, they can be a beneficiary until the age of 25, provided that they are not working or, if they are working, the annual income is less than the current MPW.

If during the calendar year there are alternating periods of work an inactivity, this right will remain as long as the established limit is not exceeded.
