Q. I noticed someone said if you are eligible for disability retirement, you can’t get a Voluntary Separation Incentive Payment. There are many requirements to be eligible for or awarded disability retirement. It is a complicated application process.
If you applied and/or if you have a disability, why should this mean you are automatically eligible for it and therefore not eligible for VSIP?
A. The rules are clear. If you have a disability such that you are or would be eligible for disability retirement, you are barred from receiving a Voluntary Separation Incentive Payment.
