We recently assisted a federal
medical records technician
with his FERS disability claim. He suffers from several back-related conditions,
lumbar spondyloarthritis, lumbar postlaminectomy syndrome, and myofascial
As a direct result of his debilitating symptoms, he is unable to ambulate
without experiencing significant back and leg pain and is unable to sit
for prolonged periods of time without experiencing severe lumbar pain.
Therefore, even though his position is primarily sedentary, his inability
to sit for prolonged periods prevents him from being able to perform the
essential functions of his job on a consistent and timely basis. We worked
closely with his physician to draft a compelling statement, and we’re
delighted to report that this employee’s disability claim has been
approved – congratulations!
