Those entitled to the mobility allowance as defined by the ‘mobility constraints’. A mobility constrained person is a citizen with leg impairment included in the closed list of the Mobility Agreement, who, on the date of the presentation of the claim has reached retirement age. In addition, a mobility impaired person is required to suffer a limitation of minimal mobility of 40% if that person has a driving permit. If a mobility impaired person does not have a driving license, the degree of mobility impairment required to receive the mobility allowance is 60%. It should be mentioned that a mobility impaired person without a driving license, determined by the mobility medical committee to suffer an impairment of 60% or more, will be entitled to the monthly mobility allowance only if has an authorized driving person, to drive him.
