Social assistance is a right of the citizen and duty of the State. The benefit of continued provision is given to the disabled person who does not have the means to provide for their maintenance. The person with a disability is one who has a long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensorial disability, which, in interaction with one or more barriers, may obstruct their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others. The granting of this benefit is subject to medical evaluation and social evaluation by experts at INSS (National Institute of Social Security). Administrative refusals generate judicial litigation, and the magistrate requests the expert evidence to form his conviction. Thus, it is imperative to standardize concepts and technical criteria used in judicial expert assessment to comply with the pertinent legislation of the benefit of continued provision.
