If you are a federal worker who suffers from a disabling medical condition, and your agency is unable to accommodate the disability in your current job or at any vacant job within the agency at the same grade or pay level, you may be eligible for federal disability retirement benefits.
To be eligible for these benefits, you do not need to suffer from a work-related disability. In fact, many federal employees suffer an injury outside of the workplace that hinders their ability to do their job.
Even though your disability may not qualify you for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you may still be allowed to collect disability retirement benefits through the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS).
At Harris Federal, we can review your case and help you to determine whether your medical condition qualifies you for these important benefits and whether you meet other requirements. Simply call or submit our online form today for a free consultation.
As we have found, the following are common types of injuries that prompt federal workers to seek disability retirement benefits:
Some federal employees think that, if an injury arose outside of the workplace, they do not qualify for federal disability retirement benefits. This is not correct. Even if you seek other non-federal employment because your injury keeps you from performing your federal job, you may still be eligible to receive benefits.
At Harris Federal, we look out for you, making sure you understand all of the benefits you are entitled to receive if you are disabled and cannot perform some functions or your entire job. As professionals, we make sure all your documentation is correct and filed on time.
We can help you if you are a federal worker located anywhere in the U.S. Contact us today to learn more.
