How We Serve Federal Employee Union Members

Harris Federal Law Firm has a deep respect for federal employee unions. We appreciate how these organizations play a vital role in protecting the rights and interests of public sector workers across the country.

Our law firm now offers a special program for federal employee unions. Our goal is to educate and assist union members about federal disability retirement benefits – an important but often misunderstood program for qualifying workers.

Our program is two-fold: 

  • Education – Our firm can speak at local and national meetings or hold special workshops to address questions the union members may have. We can teach federal employees  how the federal disability retirement benefit program:
  1. compares to regular retirement (FERS & CSRS)
  2. interacts with other federal employee benefits
  3. can be compared and taken into consideration with regard to choosing between it and federal workers compensation’s total temporary disability benefits. 
  • Assistance – We can provide discounted rates for our legal services to some union members. These services include not only assistance with filing a claim but with modifying the presentation in order to meet the technical requirements of the program and follow up with handling appeals.

As the nation’s leading law firm focusing on federal disability retirement, our lawyers and chartered federal employee benefit consultants are sought after as speakers for their technical knowledge.  We enjoy collaborating with unions and their members.

National Treasury Employees UnionFor example, we recently shared our program with the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU), which represents more than 150,000 federal employees in 31 federal agencies and departments.

Thanks to our agreement with NTEU, their members can now receive:

  • 20 percent discount off our flat fee for filing and pursuing a claim with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). We provide an additional five percent discount for members who pay our fee in full at the start of our representation, and
  • A 20 percent discount off our billing for representation in appeals of OPM-denied claims that go before the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).

This program is ideal for union members who anticipate their federal disability retirement benefits claim may be disputed as well as those who simply would like an experienced legal professional to handle their case.
