It is that place where one teeters; of that gnawing sense and feeling. It often occurs with one’s faith — of an abiding doubt, healthy in order to keep the questions active and relevant. For, as one grows older, one often becomes entrenched in beliefs of yesteryear merely because we held them the day before.
It is in youth where the incessant questions arise; middle age, when the weariness of unanswered queries exhausts us to a point where we simply give up; and in old age, when we arrogantly believe that wisdom somehow occurs through osmosis. The edge of doubt is the point where we must force ourselves to look out over the precipice and consider the options.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that the medical condition prevents the Federal or Postal employee from performing one or more of the essential elements of one’s Federal or Postal job, the edge of doubt is when you recognize the impact upon your ability and capacity to continue in your career.
Contact a FERS Disability Attorney who specializes in OPM Disability Retirement Law and consider whether or not the edge of doubt may require you to prepare, formulate and file an effective Federal Disability Retirement application under FERS.
