Federal Disability Retirement: A Dissertation Part 11

Oct 25, 2011

From Yesterday…

While that may seem like an easy thing to accomplish, it can be very difficult to specifically meet that burden along with the other requirements regarding attempts to accommodate and adequate medical evidence can be very difficult.

This is the general FERS retirement computation:

If the annuitant is under the age of 62 at separation, or over the age of 62 but with less than 20 years of credible service, the annuitant is entitled to 1% of their High-3 per credible year of service. If the new annuitant is over 62 and has more than 20 years of credible service they receive 1.1% per credible year.

Special provisions employees are entitled to 1.7% of their High-3 per credible year of service up to 20 years and 1% for every year above 20 years.

Remember, this information is meant to be helpful, but you should never make any major decisions about your retirement or employment benefits without having a professional evaluate your particular situation. Come back tomorrow for more about FERS disability retirement
