Chilean Pension of Mercy payments (Pensione de Gracia) were established under law by the Chilean Government in the early 1990s to compensate and repair the moral suffering of the victims and relatives of victims of human rights abuse or political violence that occurred in Chile between 11 September 1973 and 10 March 1990. The payments are those made under Chilean Law 19.123 (mercy payments) and those made under Chilean Law 19.234 and its amendments (periodic mercy payments). These payments are exempt from the income test applied to all payments made under the social security laws of Australia.
