To get the basic benefit the customer needs a medical assessment of the degree of their disability caused by the injury or disease. This is expressed as a percentage. A customer who claimed Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB) before 1 October 1986 and was assessed as being between 1% and 19% disabled normally got a lump sum gratuity. How much they got depended on the degree of their disability and the period of assessment.

Since 1 October 1986 any claim resulting in an assessment of less than 14% disabled does not normally attract benefit, unless the disability is caused by pneumoconiosis, byssinosis, or diffuse mesothelioma. If a customer claims benefit for more than one industrial accident or disease the assessments may be added together and benefit awarded on the total.

If a customer is assessed as being 14% disabled or more, they will be paid a weekly disablement pension. How much they get depends on the percentage of their disability. If they are assessed as being:

  • 14% to 19% disabled, they are paid at the 20% rate
  • over 20% disabled their assessments are rounded up or down to the nearest 10% – for example 34% would be rounded down to 30%, and 35% would be rounded up to 40%

Benefit can only be paid in respect of occupational deafness if the assessment is 20% or more.

The customer’s occupation or any loss of earnings are not taken into account in the assessment of their disability, but they may get allowances added to their basic benefit .

If the customer is entitled to other social security benefits, these will be paid as well as IIDB.
