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.

Greetings,

I assume by now everyone has received the letter from OPM saying that the DES for 2020 will be done online this year via Services Online on or around 15 Feb, 2021. If you haven't logged in for a while, probably need to do so to make sure you have access. Your COLA enhanced salary can also be reviewed there for the new year.

Yes log in every 18 months, or you will be locked out. Good info to know. For years the form said "DO NOT" fill out if you had no earnings. Then they changed it, I almost threw it out in my last years on DR. Hey how about that COLA, my rent has gone up 8%, and my FEHB went up about 6% so that 1 percent COLA will be oh so helpful, oh~

Greetings,

You will always have to fill this form out. Having zero income is a thing you WANT a record of.
