 It advances that holders of the right to pension people aged 60 or over, residing in the host country for at least 30 years, children with disabilities, chronic or disabling illness and who depend on third parties to satisfy their basic needs.

It also includes individuals aged between 18 and 60 years, who suffer from permanent incapacity to exercise any income generating activity.

The Government defines that the assignment will be for people who are natives of Cape Verde or descendants of Cape Verdean citizens up to the 3rd degree, be in a situation of social vulnerability and not be covered by any other social security system.

However, stipulates the executive, the pension is suspended when the beneficiary fails to provide proof of life, is out of the country, without justification to the management entity for an uninterrupted period of more than 90 days, except when traveling abroad results from evacuation for medical treatment, in addition to other aspects.
