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.

No they cannot force you to retire however, as
you do not explain as to what has happened to you
are you on OWCP; how long have you been gone,
why do you want to come back if you are not fully
recovered and have you asked to reasonably
accommodated? I need more details than just the
question you asked and are they offering you
disability retirement because you have already
gone to DRAC and that is the only option they
gave you.
