Disability Retirement - Steve Barszcz, Esq. - FREE CONSULATATION.
Federal employees need not be totally disabled to receive OPM disability retirement benefits. If you are disabled from performing one or more of the essential elements of your job you may be entitled to benefits. Here are the requirements of OPM Disability Retirement:
If you receive OPM disability retirement you can still go out and earn up to 80% of what your former position currently pays and continue to receive your disability benefits. For example, you can earn up to $32,000 per year and receive OPM disability retirement if your former position currently pays $40,000 per year.
OPM benefits are paid at 60% of your wages the first year and at 40% for each year following. The rate of pay is based on the average of your best three years of wages. FERS recipients must also apply for Social Security Disability since they paid into the system and may be entitled to draw from the Social Security system as well.
In order to receive OPM disability retirement, you must effectively present the following to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) for consideration :
** SPECIAL NOTE ** - You have only 1 year from the date of your termination or separation from federal service to apply for OPM disability retirement. Your failure to apply for OPM Disability Retirement within one year will forever preclude you from the benefits.
