Federal Disability Retirement
Disability Retirement under the Federal Employees Retirement System
FERS Disability Retirement
Qualifying federal employees can seek disability retirement benefits under the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) if they become disabled – even if the injury or medical condition did not occur at work.
Employees whose initial applications and requests for reconsideration have been denied have the option to appeal to the Merit System Protection Board (MSPB). The MSPB will schedule a hearing before an administrative law judge, who will take testimony, consider the evidence and make a ruling.
When you’re dealing with an unexpected injury or medical condition, going to court is likely the last thing on your mind. At Uliase & Uliase, our attorneys can handle all matters related to your appeal before the MSPB. We will gather and evaluate related evidence, assist in the preparation and filing of all necessary documentation, and act as your advocate at the hearing before the administrative law judge. Our legal team takes care of the burden of appealing your claim denial, so you and your family can concentrate on recovery.
