When we were young, it didn’t matter. It “mattered” in a hypothetical sense — but it was essentially a problem for older people and those who hit unfortunate circumstances. Things “matter” only when it actually matters, and rarely on a theoretical level.
Do you look at the detailed language of your insurance policies — whether on our homes, our health or our cars? Or, do we just quickly agree to the general terms of coverage, then file away the multi-paginated policy itself until that day we hope will never come, suddenly arrives?
Health, too, matters not in our youth; in the middle and later years, when time has finally ravaged and tested our mortality and frailty, suddenly we begin to experience the impact of our folly-filled past. When health mattered — when did it? It always did; we just ignored it in the folly of our youth.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition and can recognize that health matters because it impacts our ability to remain employed, contact an OPM Disability Lawyer who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law, and consider the next steps in preparing, formulating and filing an effective Federal Disability Retirement application, under FERS, to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
