What is Federal Disability Retirement?
If you are a federal employee you are likely paying into FERS consistently throughout your employment.
When a medical or mental health diagnosis prevents you from performing one or more essential functions of your job or from attending work altogether, you may be eligible to retire and receive a sizable monthly benefit – along with all the health insurance benefits you had during federal employment!
How Do I Apply and Get Approved?
The Office of Personnel Management sets forth nuanced eligibility requirements along with detailed procedures for applying for disability retirement benefits.
While any federal employee can attempt to apply on their own, many engage the services of an experienced disability retirement specialist to turn the odds of a successful outcome in their favor. So much is at stake – potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars over a lifetime, and having your application in skilled hands may be the determining factor in winning your due benefits.
