People who certify a disabling condition such as to limit some functions, can obtain benefits from INPS. These forms of facilitation are due to the extent that the competent medical commission certifies the presence of the dysfunction in developmental age or adulthood. Unlike the civil invalidity pension, the specific subsidy that we are going to deepen below is not affected by income limits for the application. Even with this health problem, INPS pays around 300 euros in checks every month and so let’s see what it is.
When it is possible to apply for the monthly subsidy
Those who have hearing problems and are affected by congenital or acquired deafness, can request the communication allowance from INPS. It follows the provisions of article 4 of Law no. 508/1988. This is a welfare type treatment that is not affected by age or income limits, but is paid only by way of the impairment. Each year, the amount of this indemnity undergoes changes which are calculated on the basis of specific indicators. Compared to 2020, the communication allowance has not undergone any particular changes. In fact, we have gone from a monthly check of 258 euros in 2020 to a check of 258.82 euros per month in 2021.
Those suffering from marked hearing loss or deafness can apply for this subsidy which includes specific health requirements. Furthermore, it is good to know that this allowance is perfectly compatible with the performance of a work activity and is also compatible with hospitalization. The allowance for people with deafness can also be combined with the INPS accompanying allowance which in 2021 corresponds to 522.10 euros per month or with the allowance for the absolute blind.

What are the health requirements that INPS admits to sending the subsidy? If the recipient of the benefit is no older than 12 years, the acceptable hearing loss is greater than or equal to 60 decibels of HTL on average. This hearing loss should be at frequencies of 500, 1,000 and 2,000 Hertz in the least affected ear. The assessment is different for those over the age of 12. In this case the hearing loss must be equal to or greater than 75 HTL decibels. Furthermore, this hearing reduction must already be before the age of 12. All Italian citizens, non-EU foreigners residing in Italy or non-EU citizens with a regular residence permit can apply for the subsidy. It is important that each applicant certifies permanent and habitual residence on the national territory. Otherwise, INPS suspends the benefit.
