The main goal of this paper is to estimate a Disability Beneficiaries Life Table from the General Social Security Regime for Private Sector Workers (RGPS) by sex, age and disability cause in Brazil using multiple-decrement models. We used administrative records from Technological Enterprises and Social Security Information (DATAPREV 1999- 2002), and the information of social beneficiaries given by National Records of Social Information (CNIS 1999-2002).The results show that –in contradiction with the disability life tables used in the private sector– the male disability retirement hazard increases steadily until age 65 and decreases afterwards. However, for females, these risks increase continuously up to the oldest age. More sex differentials show that, among women, the risk of disability retirement is larger due to circulatory diseases, musculoskeletal diseases and neoplasms. Among males, mental disorders are the most responsible for an overweight in the number of pensioners, especially among the young and adult age groups. This paper contributes to a better understanding of work and disability, especially in the field of social security and retirement.
