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.

Hi I would like to retire in a couple of years. My medical condition has metastasized and I would like to spend my years with my family and friends.

Can I retire after 21 years I'll be 53 years old and will my life insurance continue after service and will I have some sort of pension?

This link might provide some info for you when you could retire.

You may also file for OPM D.R. & SSDI at any age. You will get a pension either way, you can keep your FEHB & life insurance as well!

If it’s listed here, SSDI is easier to get and so is DR, in my opinion.
