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.

Like the subject says, I transferred from OWCP to OPM disability in late January 2021. It’s now almost July and, nope, haven’t seen a dime from these people.
Ok I divorced 7 years ago, I filed the paperwork regarding the x then and included it with my disability package (which was approved)…
I’ve called OPM every few weeks and I can’t get a straight answer to anything, as in where is my package and what is the process it goes through. I can’t even get a general timeline when to I can even almost receive an annuity. And I was told I can’t get an interim payment.
At this point, I’m paying my insurance, mortgage, bills with the little VA disability coming in, at this point I’m wondering when I am going to have to start selling my blood plasma.
Does anyone have a clue to the process?
Why are people transferring from OWCP to OPM disability ineligible for interim payment? OPM calculated payment when I was approved…
How much longer can this be dragged on?
…great I know I’ll get months of back pay maybe but in the meantime I’m struggling here.

Have you tried calling OPM to request interim payment?

There is an OPM PDF that might be of help? I know there are no interim payments when you do do the switch
