Q. I am a FERS law enforcement officer with about 15 years’ service. I have a pain condition that does not show up on medical tests but for which I have been receiving treatments from doctors for about seven years. The FERS disability application says the system requires medical tests to prove the condition. If I have only a doctor’s diagnosis without positive tests, would my FERS disability application be considered?
A. Yes, but it might not be approved.
