OWCP and FERS disability retirement


Q. I was approved for FERS disability retirement but remained on Worker’s Comp. and yet to take the FERS disability retirement. I had 18 1/2 years at air traffic control. When I reach age 62 and the FERS is recalculated, is the time on OWCP counted for that calculation?

A. You’ll find your answer at http://www.opm.gov/retirement-services/publications-forms/csrsfers-handbook/c102.pdf. Just scroll to Section 102A2.1-2.
