Eligibility for OPM Disability Retirement Benefits

Once federal employees accumulate 18 months of service for the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) or five years under the Civil Service Retirement Service (CSRS), they are eligible for disability benefits approved by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). As opposed to Social Security Disability, you do not need to be completely disabled from working to qualify for OPM benefits.

If a physician determines that your disability prevents you from performing at least one essential part of your federal job duties, you may be eligible for OPM Disability Retirement benefits. Additionally, you may still qualify for such benefits if the disability is not related to an injury or illness suffered on the job. An important aspect of OPM Disability Retirement benefits is that you can continue to work while your application is pending or when you are receiving benefits, especially if you are placed on light duty.

Our Dallas OPM disability lawyers can thoroughly examine your claim, help you fill out your application, ensure you obtain the proper documents, and even appeal a denial on your behalf. Do not wait to get the benefits you need to support yourself and your loved ones.

Our firm can help you with the following tasks:

  • Drafting reports on your disability, injury, or illness that prevents you from performing an essential job task
  • Helping address preexisting conditions
  • Ensuring you are eligible for light duty or other job tasks
  • Correctly preparing doctor’s letters
  • Moving you toward a federal disability retirement annuity
  • Increasing your chances of having your application approved
