When is Retirement Disability available?

Disability Retirement is available to workers that can no longer perform the full duties required of their specific title. This legal standard means that you must no longer be able to perform your job, it does not require that you be disabled from all jobs in the United States like Social Security Disability. If you and your treating doctors believe that your injury or illness will not allow you to return to your previous work, an application for Disability Retirement should be file.
