It is an economic benefit paid to athletes and differs depending on whether they are members of the Olympic Club Fund or the Olympic Medallists Fund (both funds have been closed). Beneficiaries must meet the requirements established by special agreements to be able to benefit from the contribution payment.
The service is aimed at both athletes, not necessarily participants in the Olympics, who are part of the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) with an "Olympic Solidarity Fund" and those registered with the Olympic Medallists Fund for the following Olympics:
- Atlanta 1996;
- Nagano 1998;
- Sidney 2000;
- Salt Lake 2002.
The claim to INPS must be submitted on-line using the dedicated service.
