Profile of the National Institute of Social Security beneficiaries retired due to disability in Rio Grande do Sul from 2010 to 2015. Cad. saúde colet. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.3, pp.278-285.

The present study investigated the epidemiological profile of disability retirees in Rio Grande do Sul from 2010 to 2015.


A descriptive and quantitative research was carried out using the cross-sectional survey method based on secondary data obtained by Sistema Único de Benefícios (SUIBE). The variables used for this study were age, sex, contribution period before retirement, salary range of the retiree after the disability, and International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10).


Of the total of 94,670 disability retirees, 55.6% were male, 64.4% were between 40 and 59 years old, 44.3% had an average income of 1 minimum wage and 25.3% of concessions were associated to musculoskeletal system and connective tissue diseases.


From the pathologies identified in the study, it is possible to direct the development of actions to emphasize the importance of prevention, early diagnosis and correct treatment, in order to avoid pathologies and/or their aggravation, as well as the withdrawal from the labor market.
