Disability Retirement


The federal government allows employees who are unable to work to retire under a disability retirement. It is in the best interest of both employees and the federal government for employees to remain gainfully employed in their current grade or pay level, as long as they can provide useful and efficient service without endangering themselves, others or government property.
Disability retirement should be the very last option and should be used only when attempts have been made to preserve an individual's employment, and those attempts have failed.

Order our Disability Retirement guide to educate yourself on the rules and regulations concerning disability retirement for federal employees.

Thanks.

I want to call again, last time 2 weeks after approval letter dated 10 July 2019... person on phone could not tell me anything other than interim payments should begin after receiving info from my agency and since my application included benefits letter from SSA showing I am receiving SSDI that I did not need to send another letter or SSDI application receipt.

Are there better question(s) to ask that might help me? other than what can you tell me about status....

The Person at the call center is like a Secretary, you would want to speak to the specialist working on your Finalization. Unless you have any issues or specific concerns there should be no real reason to make contact. Finalizations are running quite a few months in many cases, and when it's over you will get a personalized benefit booklet withall the figures OPM used. *Note, these figures are not always correct*
