Disability retirement

0

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?

Re-employment after disability retirement

0

Q. I was removed from my agency due to becoming “Medically Unqualified” after 4 years, 9 months under FERS and given disability retirement in 2007. I am considering returning to federal service with a job at the Defense Department. With the disability retirement, I understand that if I maintain the retirement until I am age 62, the time I was on disability retirement would count as time in service for computing my regular retirement. Does that mean the time I have been a disability annuitant will count as service time for a new federal job? Would I/could I buy back…

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…

Disability annuity and continued federal employment

Q. Since I started receiving a FERS disability annuity, I have worked while still receiving the annuity. What percent of my federal service salary can I earn without losing my annuity? (It was 60 percent or so.) I was a GS-855-12 step 2. What is the current salary for that position (GS schedules are easy to find, but not GS-855 salary schedules showing their higher rates of pay)? Do I still lose my disability annuity if I return to work for the federal government as a teacher at an overseas military base? (It used to be that returning to work…

Q. I retired as a CWO-3 (USMC) after serving 21 years. I am receiving retirement pay and received a 20 percent disability rating from the Veterans Affairs Department and get payments from VA. If I take a position with a federal agency, will I lose any of my military retirement?

FERS, military service and disability

Q. I’m 51 with 27 years of technician service in the Army National Guard and may be medically disqualified on the military side of the house. I’m wondering if this falls under the FERS discontinued service retirement formula or if it would be a FERS disability retirement and fall under the formula of 60 percent the first year and 40 percent after that.

Disability retirement

Q. I am a former federal employee (canine enforcement officer) who was injured on the job in 1999. I was placed on COP and then on the periodic rolls of the Department of Labor. After a year of physical rehab, my doctor released me to light duty, for which the US Customs Service had no jobs available to me. I was terminated in 2000. I am still being paid by the DOL. I was recently sent by DOL to a doctor to evaluate my condition, and the doctor determined that my status is permanent at the sedentary level. I am…

Social Security disability and CSRS retirement

0

Q. I started getting Postal Service and Social Security disability in 1994. I am in CSRS Offset, not FERS. I started a job, and they stopped my Social Security disability because my earnings were substantial. I am 65. I applied for Social Security, since I will be 66 in July. My Social Security is 30 percent less than I received under Social Security disability. The clerk at Social Security said they had been paying me too much disability each month, but since it had been more than four years since the error on their part, they would not try to…
