Are you an injured or ill federal employee struggling to work? If so, Federal Disability Retirement might be the smart option for you. Read on to learn about why you might consider applying for Federal Disability Retirement.
Federal Disability Retirement Benefits
The truth is that Federal Disability Retirement is not for everyone. But it provides some of the best overall qualities for any federal employee that cannot continue to do their job on a full duty basis. It also provides some much needed security during a difficult time in someone’s career or life. The following benefits include:
- A monthly annuity
- Continued health and life insurance
- Additional creditable years of service
- The option to work in the private sector
Keep in mind that this benefit gives you control over whether or not you want to re-enter and when you want to re-enter the work force without someone following you around with a camera all the time. These benefits are life-changing and offer financial security to those approved.
As with any benefit program you have to qualify and prove your disability and it isn’t designed for anyone to just scam the system. However, if you are a federal employee who can no longer perform your job duties any longer, then the disability may be a good fit for you. To be eligible for this benefit you must meet the 3 basic requirements:
- Must be a FERS career employee.
- Must have 18 months of creditable service.
- Must have a medical condition.
