04/23/2014 by Federal Lawyer
Does lack of laughter signify anything? If a person was known to laugh a lot, then one day comes in with nary a chuckle, is it significant at all? Is it the reverberation from the throat, or the eyes which reveal sadness, which tells the true tale of a person's state of mind? [...]

new Landmark success for many FERS Disability Retirement annuitants. Attorney Robert R. McGill has won a precedent-setting case for those individuals who are or were receiving FERS & SSDI benefits concurrently. In the past, when such individuals lost their SSDI benefits because of engaging in substantial gainful activity, OPM would refuse to recalculate the FERS annuity back to the original amount, despite the loss of the offset. Upon oral argument before a 3-Judge panel, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed OPM's position, potentially impacting thousands of FERS annuitants who did not have their benefits recalculated. This is a major win for Federal Workers across the United States.

I am an attorney who specializes in Federal and Postal disability retirement law under CSRS and FERS. I have been successful at all levels of the Disability Retirement Application process -- from the initial submission of the applications; to the Second Stage of appeal -- the "Request for Reconsideration" Stage; to the final stage of appeal, before the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).

OPM Disability Retirement is a benefit granted to all Federal Employees who meet the criteria of "Disability". By "Disability", however, it does not mean that you must be completely physically incapacitated; rather, it means that you are no longer able to provide effective service in the essential elements of your job. As such, you do not need to be "totally disabled" in order to be eligible for Federal or Postal disability Retirement under FERS or CSRS.

The Office of Personnel Management carefully reviews all applications for Federal Disability Retirement. It is a benefit which should be looked at as an entitlement and an investment. Consequently, any OPM Federal Employee intending to file for Disability Retirement should seek the advice and counsel of an experienced attorney.

If any Federal employee is contemplating filing for OPM disability retirement, he or she should contact me at 1-800-990-7932. You may also E-mail me at  federal.lawyer@yahoo.com.

Thank you.
