For nonfederal employees…

In order to be eligible for Social Security disability, one must be unable to perform any substantial gainful activity. If you’re not a federal employee and you would like to discuss your situation, please contact us.

For federal employees…

Many federal employees confuse Federal Disability Retirement with Social Security disability. These are two separate benefits overseen by two completely different federal government agencies. Some employees assume that they may only qualify for one or the other, but some times they may qualify for both.

If a federal employee applies for Federal Disability retirement, he may also need to apply for Social Security disability. If approved for both, it doesn’t necessarily increase their overall monthly income benefit.
