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.

If OPM decides to allow an employee to retire due to disability… what would the effective date be? Is it possible to use accrued leave to extend that date?

You would be paid from your last hour on the job. You will be paid cash for annual leave, S/L is added to your time in service.

So, when is the last hour of the job? The day you get the letter from OPM approving the disability retirement? Or do they let you finish out the pay period?

Can that be prolonged by using leave in instances where you want to try and stay longer?

It's based on your last day of pay.
