Medical Retirement

If you are a Federal Civil Employee and are disabled for any reason, you may be entitled to disability retirement benefits, otherwise known as medical retirement. Like other procedures facing injured Federal Civil Employees, the medical retirement process requires knowledge of the system and an experienced advocate to successfully handle your claim.

The first step in filing for medical retirement is to submit an application through your Human Resources Department. Thereafter, your claim is determined by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Should your claim be denied, you must go through reconsideration by the OPM before another administrative body reviews your claim. Only after reconsideration, can your appeal be reviewed by the Merit Systems Protections Board for a hearing.

Needless to say, the medical retirement process is bureaucratic and it pays to retain an experienced attorney so your claim can be handled with minimum delay and frustration. In addition to filing your claim, we will represent you at any necessary hearing, should you need to appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board. We have represented clients in medical retirement claims for over two decades and are always current with any and all changes in process or procedure. Our firm has the ability to present your claim in the best light, reducing your stress and increasing your chances of success.
