Temporary Disability

This is when a worker finds themselves in a situation where they are temporarily unable to work and require health care from the Social Security.

The beneficiaries are affiliated workers with active contributor status who have covered a minimum contribution period of 180 days within the 5 years prior to the date of the leave, when it is due to a common disease.
