- For reaching 21 years of age (unless at that time they have a reduced capacity for work evaluated as a percentage grade of absolute permanent disability or severe disability.)
When there is only one parent, if the orphan does not work or their income is lower than NMW:
- From 02/08 to 31/12 of 2011, to 22 years of age.
- During 2012, on turning 23.
- During 2013, on turning 24.
- From 2014, to 25 years of age or from the first day of the month immediately after the beginning of the next academic year.
Where no parent exists or the orphan has a disability equal to or greater than 33%, if the orphan works or his/her income is lower than the NMW, the pension will be extinguished at 25 years of age.
If the orphan is studying and turns 25 during the academic year, they will continue to receive the pension until the first day of the month immediately following the beginning of the next academic year.
If on the expiry of the pension, for any of the first four causes, the beneficiary has not received the 12 monthly payments of the pension, the amount remaining to complete them will be paid to him in one lump sum.
The same rule will be applied, when the beneficiary has not received any amount of the orphanhood pension before reaching the age limit in order to receive it, for having applied for it on an earlier date to the date on which he reaches that age, as long as he did meet the conditions of a beneficiary on the date of the causal event.
