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 all, been a while..
 
 I wanted to let you know I was finalized March 15. So it was only from being approved Dec 05 until now to get finalized. I also received about 900 backpay from the interim payments.

Finalized is the end of the approval stage when all the figures are ironed out,  any back monies are paid and you get a Blue Book!

So it was approved  December 5th or December 2005?  That would be a long time.

ClapThat's awesome, your facility must have had a good HR person do the paperwork right and it was in a good flow from there.   My DR was approved in November 2011, still on interim (no suprise to me it's only been 4 payments) .  I've made no calls since retirement, my first interim payement was the very next first of the month. Maybe it's a sign things are going a bit faster right now.
