OPM Disability Retirement: Summer Waiting

I have written previously about the long and arduous waiting process & period in trying to obtain CSRS & FERS Federal Disability Retirement benefits from the Office of Personnel Management. Remember that, in your calculation in attempting to survive financially, economically, emotionally, medically, physically, mentally — and in all other ways, keep in mind that the summer months from July to August often represent a “dead zone” when many Federal employees take time off for vacation, time for family, and time for relaxation.  While it is understandable that this makes the Federal disability retirement applicant nervous and anxious to be placed “on hold” when such an important decision may be held in abeyance, it is simply a reality which must be taken into account.  Don’t get frustrated; be patient.  The summer months will come and go, and the important point is to keep looking forward to the future.

Sincerely,

Robert R. McGill, Esquire

  1. I AM A 64 YEAR OLD 100% RETIRED VETERAN. I HAVE MANY ISUES FROM A.O RELATED PROSTATE CANCER, DIABETIES MULLITUS, HYPERTENSION, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND HIGH CHOLESTROL. I STILL BEARLY MANAGE TO GO TO WORK. THE STRESS OF THE POST OFFICE MAKES IT HARD TO REGULATE MY HEALTH. HOW HARD WOULD IT BE FOR ME TO BE APPROVED FOR FERS DISABILITY RETIREMENT AND SSDI?
