abstract = "The mortality experience among 4,440 applicants for disability pension has been examined during a period of observation of ten years.

The higher mortality risk is still present more than ten years after the application has been settled. The persons who were refused disability pension experienced an elevated mortality, too. In opposition to previous studies it is not found informative to put forward a common estimate of the elevated mortality rate because the group of disability applicants is very heterogeneous concerning their mortality experience; the excess mortality is most elevated among persons granted the high level pension, among the youngest, and during the period closest to the award.",
