2 thoughts on “Federal and Postal workers: Things you shouldn’t do when filing for CSRS or FERS disability retirement

  1. I filed application for FERS Disability Retirement in May 2008 but the OPM denied the first and the second applicaton. So then, I forward their correspondence to the Merit Service Protection Board. Now I have telephone conference with both the Merit Service Protection Board and OPM on 7 July 2009.

    I am a disabled veteran with multiple health problems such as TMJ, Tinnitus (or Hypercusis), Sacrodiosis, Seborrheic Dermatitis, Ocular Granultumous Uveitis, Chronic Bronchis, Depression, Chronic Fatigue, Hypertension, Sleep Disorders and Apnea.

    My work assignment is Program Management at Family Program Office. The job requirement is 75 percent Verbal Communication and physical activities for standing, walking, lifting, commuting for daily events and special projects such as quarterly training conferences and quarterly command inspections.

    Furthermore I am currently performing healthcare for 32 medical problems with additional problems. The VA provide a letter for 25 new problems. The medical examinations are pending for request orders such as MRI for Brain functions and EMG for neurological conditions.

  2. IF YOU GO OUT ON DISABILITY RETIREMENT DO YOU STILL GET YOUR GOVERNMENT PENSION? I AM 59 AND WILL HAVE HAD 20 YRS WITH THE GOVT THIS MONTH. DO I HAVE THE AGE AND THE YEARS? I AM RIGHT NOW ON WORKER’S COMP BUY THAT EXPIRED 8/27/09 AND HAVEN’T BEEN TOLD IF I WILL BE EXTENDED FOR W/C. I START MY THERAPY THIS WEEK THEY ARE PAYING FOR IT BUT IT PUTS ME IN LWOP. I TOLD THEM I COULD LOSE MY HOME WITHOUT PAY AND THE LADY SAID I HEAR THAT ALL THE TIME., I AM STRESSED AND THIS EVEN CAUSES ME MORE PAIN. I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO TURN OR WHAT TO DO. I APPRECIATE IN ADVANCE ANY ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE TO ME.
    tHANK YOU SO MCUH,
    KATHRYN KAMER
