Watch Now: Your Rights to Federal Disability Retirement

Upcoming Federal Employee Webinars

For over a decade the Harris Federal Law Firm has been helping federal employees with workers compensation claims, federal disability retirement cases and the resolution of employment disputes. We often see that federal employees have received little training in what benefits they deserve and how those benefits interact. For example, very few are aware if they are entitled to a schedule award – or that they can’t receive regular workers’ compensation and a schedule award at the same time.

Our job is to assist them in receiving the fullest extent of their benefits – but the employee must have an opportunity to learn about their rights and options in order to make an educated decision of whether or not they want to pursue the benefits. Generally, few agencies allow federal employees administrative time to participate in training. It is also often cost prohibitive to participate in face-to-face training.

Therefore, we decided to present FREE federal employee webinars! The webinars provide a complementary alternative to face-to-face training, so you can learn more about federal disability retirement without leaving the comfort of your own home. Our webinars are also interactive, and allow you to ask questions along the way.

Myth-Busting: Federal Disability Retirement

Click here to Register *After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) administers an occupational disability program for every federal employee that has over 18 months of service in the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS).

Most federal employees know very little about the program other than the myths.

Increase your knowledge about the program—it may be critical to one of your co-workers or even you and your family because it can drastically improve a federal employees’ life. For example, an employee can work outside the federal government while drawing OPM occupational disability benefits! If you are interested in learning the facts and discarding the myths, this webinar is for you.

In this FREE webinar, we will identify common misconceptions and clarify, such as:

  • I don’t qualify because my medical condition:
  1. Has not totally disabled me
  2. Was not caused by my work activity
  3. Existed before my federal service
  • I can’t afford to live on less than I earn now
  • I already have workers’ compensation
  • I don’t want to mess up my regular retirement

Watch Out! How the OWCP Can Terminate Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Click here to Register *After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

A harsh reality about OWCP Federal Workers’ Compensation? Under certain circumstances, the benefit can be terminated at any time. To prevent being blindsided by a possible termination, it’s important for federal workers to understand the different reasons the OWCP may cancel workers’ compensation payments, and to have a backup financial strategy.

In this FREE webinar, we will discuss:

  • Is a proposed job really “suitable”?
  • The Rehabilitation Program=reduction of your benefits by way of LWEC
  • The mighty 8106(d) OWCP sword
  • Second opinion medical exams
  • The “Back and Forth Trap” (OWCP to OPM to OWCP)
  • Protection strategies, and how to move forward
