Success Story – Richard S.

Jan 2, 2014

Success Story of a Federal Employee

Mr. Richard S. is a former Transportation Security Officer who lives in Staten Island, NY. His success story is one to remember.

Due to his degenerative disc disease and plantar fasciitis, lifting baggage and being on his feet all day was impossible. To make matters worse, he spent a great deal of time inhaling jet fumes that aggravated his COPD. After 11 years of service, his job duties became too much to handle.

Mr. S contacted us in July of 2013. We immediately began working with his medical providers and employer to collect and assemble documentation proving he was no longer capable of performing the duties of his position. His application for Federal Disability Retirement was submitted to the OPM in September of 2013. We are happy to announce that just 3 months later, in December of 2013, Mr. S’s application for disability retirement has been approved!

Thank You Note from Mr. Richard S:

“Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you, Anna, Kate (Kate Feel Better Soon 🙂 ) and the entire dedicated staff of Harris Federal Law Firm!
