Q. I am receiving a CSRS pension since 2005 obtained under a VERA/VSIP authority. I have recently become disabled and I am considering SSDI. I have enough quarters but not 30 years. Will this affect my CSRS pension? I am 58 years old. A. I you were approved for SSDI, it would have no affect on your CSRS annuity.

Q. I am a GS-1811 with just over 16 years of federal service. I was grandfathered into federal service at 42 and will have to retire at 62 (I am 59). Additionally, I have bought back 12 years of Army active-duty time. My Agency has proposed my removal for performance reasons, which I can directly attribute to my worsening Adult ADD. They are leaning toward an involuntary disability retirement vice removal. If I am disability retired, will my 12 years of bought-back Army time be included in the annuity calculation? Will it also be included in the subsequent calculation when…

Q. I am a retired FERS employee — 59 years old, with 25 years of federal service. I retired two years ago under VERA VSIP. My employer (Defense Department) was reducing the workforce due to budget cuts and abolished my job. I paid into Social Security for 42 years. I have some health issues and am considering applying for Social Security disability. My question is: Will Social Security disability retirement affect my FERS annuity?

Q. I am a GS-1811 Special Agent with four years until my FERS retirement in 2018 at age 62 (I was “grandfathered in” at age 42). And I have also bought back 12 years of military service time. I failed a PIP due to my ADD/ADHD & depression, and I was recently served with a Notice of Proposed Removal as an 1811. I am in a 3-agent office, four hours away from our Resident Office, and there are no non-1811 jobs available to me in my office’s area. Because I am considered disabled per the ADA guidelines, and the NOPR…

Restoration of sick leave

Q. I retired on FERS disability on Dec. 6, 2010, at age 53 with 21 years of federal service. I had 1,050 hours of sick leave. In May 2014, I returned to federal service in a virtual job that I work from home. OPM has not found me recovered. 1. Because my sick leave was not used in the calculation of my annuity (I retired under 62 years of age), should all my sick leave be restored? 2. The new hiring agency has offset my salary by my annuity and is deducting retirement. Should the agency use the old rate…

Q. I am an injured postal worker and I have many  conditions that  have accrued as a result of my past 12 years at the Postal Service carrying mail. I just met with the surgeon who did my last carpal tunnel surgery, and he told me that I should start exploring my options and consider medical retirement. Where do I begin to start the ball rolling and who do I need to get in contact with to help me through this difficult time? A.

Q. I work for the Air Force, and I have 35 years of actual service under CSRS and I am 62. I have confirmed from OPM that I can apply for disability retirement within a year after retiring and start receiving annuity payments. I have had FEHB for only one year so the regular retirement will not allow me to keep FEHB (five-year rule). Can I apply for disability retirement before my regular retirement, or do I have to wait until after I retire to apply?

Q. I’ve worked for 33 years under FERS but I’m to the point that I may have to go out on disability. Can I get my Social Security disability and my FERS disability? I’m 58 years old and a veteran. I’ve tried to understand what is on OPM, but I just want to know if I can get both?  A. As a FERS employee, if you apply for disability retirement, you must also apply for Social Security disability benefits. If you don’t, OPM won’t process your application. If you are approved for both disability retirement and SSDI, for the first…

Q. I have 31 years in FERS, including seven years military buyback. I have an MRA of 58. I am 80 percent service connected VA. I am having issues doing my job due to service-connected and other disabilities acquired during my employment. Can I collect 100 percent unemployment and still retire FERS or do I have to file FERS disability?

Disability and SSDI payments

0

Q. I retired with FERS disability and was also approved for SSDI. I am receiving checks from both places, and I do not know if this is the way it normally is because in my FERS retirement benefits book, it appears that they have taken the Social Security payments into account. I called the Social Security Administration to let them know that I was approved through the Office of Personnel Management, and I sent the paperwork given to me from SSA to the folks at OPM. Will I continue to get a check from each, as it equals 60 percent…
