Browsing: Disability retirement

Q. I am a FERS employee, eligible for early retirement due to 25 years on the job, but I am only 58 years old, so do not qualify for Social Security. Therefore, I am still working. Meanwhile, I would like to apply for Social Security Disability [SSDI]. If I am turned down, I understand I may qualify for FERS disability retirement. Also, would I still be eligible to get my Social Security benefits at age 62? Can I continue to work until I am approved for FERS disability?

Q. I have applied for medical retirement from civil service and am still awaiting for decision from the Office of Personnel Management. If I submitted a letter of resignation before my medical retirement is approved, will this affect my medical retirement approval process? In simpler terms, will this cancel out my medical retirement?

Q. I am under FERS disability retirement with 23 years of service at age 49. I was told by the Office of Personnel Management that at age 62, my 23 years would be bumped up to 32 years — the difference between when I left and when I turn 62. So would it bump up my FERS retirement at age 62? Is this correct that it would be reconfigured at a higher annuity?

Q. I work for the U.S. Postal service and I’m applying for disability retirement. Re: the high 3 year average. ,y pay rate is $58,350 for 2017. For the last 3 or 4 years I’ve been using LWOP a lot and my yearly income has hovered around $40,000 a year. Do they use my pay rate of $58,350 (it was around $58,000 for 3 consecutive years) or do they use the $40,000 figure to arrive at the 3 year average? In other words, would LWOP effect my disability retirement income? Thanks for any help.
