Squirrels are unique creatures. Nimble, acrobatic, persistent and destructive; curious and inquisitive. When one drops down a chimney because of their inquisitiveness, what do you do?
If you open the fireplace screen and try and catch it, it will likely squirm with lightening speed and begin to run around your home. If you leave it there, you cannot use your fireplace — unless you want the smell of burning flesh to permeate your house for weeks on end.
So — if there is one around your neighborhood, city, community, etc. — you call an “expert”: an animal trapper. The animal trapper — or perhaps the more narrowly-designated title, The Squirrel Catcher — comes in with the tools needed: A wide net; a number of traps; a helper, etc. Within minutes, the squirrel is caught and whisked away.
It is this specialization in solving a unique problem which is required, and filing for Federal Disability Retirement benefits under FERS is no different from calling the squirrel catcher when unique circumstances prevail.
Contact an attorney who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement. For, in the end, the Federal Disability Retirement Lawyer is similar to the squirrel catcher in that both are uniquely trained to obtain the desired result.
