The free educational seminar is set for Saturday, November 1, from 8 a.m. to noon at the John Wayne Airport Hilton at 18800 MacArthur Boulevard in Irvine, California. It is open to all federal employees.

The event is aimed at providing helpful information to federal workers about their rights and the process involved with seeking federal disability retirement and workers’ compensation benefits.

The seminar will feature presentations on:

Please feel free to join us for lunch when the seminar concludes to continue our discussion of these and other topics.
