Who Qualifies for Disability Retirement?
Disability retirement is offered to people who have been injured or suffered an illness that has left them with a disability that prevents them from performing their jobs. There are often rules requiring that the employee must have worked for a certain amount of time before becoming eligible for disability benefits. You do not have to have been injured on the job to be eligible for benefits, but you must have an injury that sidelines you for at least a year.
If you believe you are eligible for disability retirement benefits and you have not received them, the federal employment attorneys of the Vaughn Law Firm may be able to help you. Contact us today by calling 1-877-615-9495.
