your rights to federal disability retirement

Next Tuesday, February 16th, Harris Federal Law Firm will host a training webinar, entitled “Your Rights to Federal Disability Retirement.” This free training session is open to all federal employees, and will discuss Federal Disability Retirement, and how this little-known program can be a huge benefit for an injured or disabled federal worker.

Federal Disability Retirement is an occupational disability program for federal employees with over 18 months of service. The benefit is administered by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), and is a part of the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS). The program can be a life-changing asset for many injured or disabled federal workers.

In this upcoming webinar, Harris Federal Law Firm’s Senior Attorney, Brad Harris, and Chartered Federal Employee Benefits Consultant (ChFEBC), Bo Harris, will discuss how this benefit can apply to certain situations. While face-to-face training can often be cost-prohibitive, this webinar is offered as a complementary alternative, so you can learn more about federal disability retirement without leaving the comfort of your own home. The webinar will also be interactive, and allow you to ask questions along the way.

What we will discuss:

  1. Financial Benefits
  2. Qualification Standards
  3. Modified Work Assignments
  4. The Application Process
  5. Medical Hurdles
  6. Levels of OPM Adjudication
  7. Appeal Rights
