Disability Retirement


The federal government allows employees who are unable to work to retire under a disability retirement. It is in the best interest of both employees and the federal government for employees to remain gainfully employed in their current grade or pay level, as long as they can provide useful and efficient service without endangering themselves, others or government property.
Disability retirement should be the very last option and should be used only when attempts have been made to preserve an individual's employment, and those attempts have failed.

Order our Disability Retirement guide to educate yourself on the rules and regulations concerning disability retirement for federal employees.

Just a question is true some people are excluded from the medical question who are under age 60? Just wondering because someone stated that because of my illness I would be excluded from completion get one

I believe that, although who is this 'someone' and do they speak with the authority of the OPM?

I have never read anything about being excluded from follow up questionnaires, yet two, not one rep mentioned very early on after approved that I was marked as 'do not contact', a "Zero" and not subject to follow up medical questionnaires. I quietly asked why and they couldn't say but looking back they were right so far with a few years to go! Perhaps that is the code for a regular retirement, who knows?
