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.

Hi, does anyone know about this. My agency is trying to remove me for cause. Can this hinder/prevent my approval for my dis. retirement?

When you say for cause. Is it because you are unable to do your job because of your medical disability?

From the LIMITED knowledge that I have you might want to look at the Bruner Presumption on Google.

Probably should chat with a lawyer who works federal stuff.
