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.

I was approved FERS disability and ex spouse is taking 50%.
If approved for SSDI I will receive more but will I get the full thing???
Do I get the full SSDI and my spouse still gets half the FERS rate??

Greetings,

I thought you were getting a lawyer to rework your decree? Pretty sure we are going to answer this question the same as your previous one. That it varies by state and certainly by what you two agree with in your decree. You are in Texas according to your profile. If you don't have it worded in your decree what age she would start receiving payments, you probably shot yourself in the foot. FERS DR and SSDI are so intertwined that she may be entitled to a portion of it to make up the difference for your early retiring. Again, it really depends on how the Divorce agreement is worded. That's why you want your lawyer to nail this down to a penny. You don't want a judge interpreting what these things mean. Best advise is to rework the agreement and answer these questions for them.
