OPM Disability Retirement under FERS: Future Uncertainty

Is it redundant to place the two terms together?  Doesn’t “uncertainty” by definition encapsulate an assumption of the future?  For, whatever is occurring in the present is an established fact; that which is in the past, already solidified as a certainty precisely because it has already passed and cannot be changed — the very definition of “certainty”.  Yet, there is something necessary in ascribing uncertainty to the future; for, it provides a perspective, a chasm, a “chance” to correct the gap of lacking solidity; it allows us to act.

For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition where the medical condition prevents the Federal or Postal worker from performing all of the essential elements of one’s Federal or Postal job, it is the uncertainty of the future which is often what one is unable to bear.  Will I be terminated?  What will happen to my years of service?  What if I don’t qualify for OPM Disability Retirement?

Contact a FERS Disability Retirement Lawyer and see whether or not some modicum of certainty can be asserted from a universe replete with future uncertainty.

Sincerely,

Robert R. McGill, Esquire
