Disability retirement after involuntary removal


Q. Can a worker apply for disability retirement after involuntary removal? I was in a modified duty position but could not keep up and was removed for poor performance. The contention is that performance and attendance were low because of the injury that made them modify the job. Am I still eligible for disability retirement?

A. Yes, but you must do it within one year.
