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.

Last day of pay? Is that the last day worked for pay? Or does it mean day of last paycheck? Or does it mean receiving money for any reason from payroll ? Such as leave paid out or final calculation and payment of LQA or TQSE?

Greetings,

The answer should be simple but I think it is overly complex. Last Day In Pay is impacted by such things as donated leave for sure. If you were LWOP for 6 months and received donated leave you have to make certain that they apply that leave back to before you went LWOP otherwise you will lose that back pay. I hear stories on here of folks getting hit because they received a payment months later and losing back pay. As far as LQA and TQSE... I don't see a scenario where that would apply unless maybe in conjunction with return rights from an overseas assignment. Even then, they are travel benefits and those are payments for service already performed. In that case, I would be more concerned about having to reimburse the government for a percentage of a move because I think there would be a mobility agreement in place.

On similar topic I wonder what happens when you are separated after LWOP 365, then a contractual agreement backdates retroactive increases or colas. The day you last actually worked didn’t change, but a check generates a year or so later for the period your contract was expired giving you pay currently that was for time worked such a long time ago. Am I overthinking this?

I missed a "word" reading Approval letter...."last day of pay Status" guess "status" makes it easier to determine.... effective date of last SF50 (resignation) would be last day of pay status or the day prior I would think. Either way.
