The residual impact of this global pandemic is yet to be seen. More facts; more scientific evidence; more tracing studies will have to be engaged.
Yet, for many Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers, the direct impact of the Corona Virus has already been felt. Whether having contracted the virus and been hospitalized; whether deemed a “high risk” individual because of other underlying medical conditions or because of a suppressed and compromised immune system; these and other factors may result in a Federal or Postal employee being prevented from continuing in his or her career.
In that event, filing a Federal Disability Retirement application through the U.S. Office of Personnel Management may be the appropriate course of action.
Consult with an attorney to discuss whether or not Federal Disability Retirement is the right next step during this Pandemic that has wreaked havoc over so many lives, and which will continue to do so for years and years to come.
