Facilitations for people with disabilities in legalizing their stay
There are no special, separate regulations for disabled refugees from Ukraine regarding their legalization of stay in Poland. The law on assistance to citizens of Ukraine in connection with an armed conflict in the territory of that state (the so-called special act) indicates certain facilities for people with disabilities, e.g. when obtaining a PESEL number (if the person is not able to submit an application or fingerprints at the seat of the office, it is possible to do it in the place of stay of that person) – Article 4 section 2 and section 8 of Special Act. Moreover, social assistance, which is granted only to persons with disabilities, concerns, for example, specialized transport, in particular to or between the place of accommodation or meals (Article 12 (1) (4)).
Additional cash payments for people with disabilities in Poland
We advise you to familiarize yourself with the activities of the State Fund for Rehabilitation of Disabled Persons (PFRON), which provides financial support to people with disabilities from Ukraine (Ukrainian-language version in Polish): https://www.pfron.org.pl/o-funduszu/programy-i-zadania-pfron/programy-i-zadania-real/pomoc-obywatelom-ukrainy-z-niepelnosprawnoscia/komunikaty/pomoc-dla-obywateli-ukrainy-z-niepelnosprawnoscia-na-zaopatrzenie-w-wyroby-medyczne/
Employment conditions for people with disabilities
General provisions apply to persons with disabilities. It should be added that the employer, when hiring a person with a disability, may apply for funding from PFRON.
