Q. If you are approved for disability retirement, are you responsible for paying for your medical insurance and life insurance coverage? Also, if you are approved for disability retirement with the governmental agency where you work, does this mean that Social Security will approve you also?

Q. I applied for Office of Personnel Management disability retirement and I’m currently on leave without pay. Back in April (around the time OPM received my DR application), I noticed the amount in Block 19 dropped from around $8,400 to around $60. Is this somehow related to my DR application, and should I be concerned?
Q. I retired from the Air Force with 25 years of service and am collecting an active duty (Title 10) military pension. I also have a service-connected Veterans Affairs disability for time served in Iraq. Currently, I am working for the U.S. Postal Service and contributing toward a FERS retirement. Can I buy back my active duty time for my FERS retirement? If so, can collect two pensions: FERS and Title 10?
Q. I’m 100 percent disability rated from the Department of Veterans Affairs and have about 4 1/2 years military service. I am now a FERS employee and considering buying back my military time. If I do, will it affect my VA disability rating?
Q. I worked for the U.S. Air Force CSRS for many years and retired with a disability due to a car accident. I do receive a CSRS pension and a small Social Security pension. My husband worked for USAF active duty and retired after 30 years, and he passed away last month. He was receiving Social Security and an AF retirement check. The Social Security Administration says I will not get any of his Social Security, only my own small pension, because I receive a CSRS pension. Is this right and, if so, why?
Q. I retired on a disability from a law enforcement position at the age of 47, and I always thought that I would be able to get the SRS from the age of 57 until 62. However, the Office of Personnel Management said no. Is this correct?
