What is Federal Disability Retirement?

Aug 30, 2021

This is the most comprehensive overview of Federal Disability Retirement you’ll find just about anywhere.

Federal Disability Retirement goes by many different names, FERS Disability Retirement, OPM Disability Retirement, OPM Medical Retirement, and many more. But at the end of the day, they’re all referencing the same federal employee benefit.

Many federal employees have never heard about this additional benefit that is available to them through their employment. Federal Disability Retirement can be an extremely valuable option if an injured employee is having trouble continuing in their federal job. Those few federal workers who do know about the benefit rarely understand exactly how the benefit applies to them, or what they would receive. This webinar will give a comprehensive overview of what Federal Disability Retirement is and how it can benefit you.

Benefit Highlights

Federal Disability Retirement provides four main benefits; a secure monthly annuity, creditable years of service, health and life insurance, and the ability to work in the private sector. You could potentially qualify for this benefit if you are a FERS career employee with at least 18 months of creditable service and a medical condition that is preventing you from performing at least one of the essential functions of your job.
