Types of disability certificates (diagnoses)

- disability certificate collected earlier than on completion of 16 years of age
There is one exception: the third disability class certified by the certification bodies of the Ministry of Defence and those of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration. It is considered to be an ability diagnosis, because the person diagnosed with it is able to work outside of military services. A mild disability can be diagnosed only when the third disability class corresponding to inability to work for uniformed services also includes a diagnosis of the third general disability class.
