As I have stated before, the disabled federal employee if often caught between a rock and hard place. Frequently a federal employee suffers from some form of disability and requires reasonable accommodation to allow him or her to perform the essential functions of his job. But what happens when the accommodation either does not work, is not granted, or the federal employee’s mental or physical condition deteriorates to such an extent that it becomes impossible for the employee to perform useful and efficient service. Well, that should be your cue, as a federal employee that it is time to seek OPM Disability.
If you feel that this might be the direction you would want to go you need to recognize that applying for OPM Disability Retirement requires numerous steps that must be navigated before an employee can feel confident that they will actually reap the benefits of the OPM Disability and not end up removed without a job!
