You’ll need to understand Federal Disability Retirement laws under either FERS or CSRS in order to qualify for disability retirement with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The qualifying legal criteria for OPM Disability Retirement is not the same as other disability retirement benefits programs such as those ran by the Social Security Administration (SSA) or the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Just one tip: You do not have to prove in the OPM Disability Retirement forms you are very, very sick.
The first step is always the most difficult one, that is, to make up your mind. If you have been unable to perform the most basic elements of the Federal or Postal job you were hired for, Attorney Robert McGill will be able to help you. However, he will need some more details from you to make sure you have a case before you even think about filing for Federal Disability Retirement benefits under either FERS or CSRS.
Contact Robert for a free phone consultation. He has over 30 years of experience working with Federal and Postal employees. Just explain to him about the basic elements of your current job, the nature of your medical conditions, and any other relevant information he will need to know in order of making an assessment about your eligibility. If he feels you don’t even need an attorney, he will gladly tell you so.
