We all have a cadence which we follow; the morning routine; the afternoon lull; the evening monotony of every day actions, repeated each day, day after day. And so the march of life goes on, with a familiar cadence throughout, rarely uninterrupted, and allowing for sanity to perform the subconscious acts throughout each and every day. For, if every day were to lack the cadence of the previous day, chaos would prevail and the anarchy of life’s problems would be the only force which would dominate.
We like music which possesses an inherently consistent beat. Instruments placed together and playing without regard to one another merely produce sounds of shrieking discordance. “Music”, indeed, is different from mere sounds blaring at the same time, and the cadence of the day is like music to one’s ear: It is pleasant, reliable, and dependable.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that the medical condition no longer allows you to continue in your career with the Federal Agency or the U.S. Postal Service, the fact that your cadence of life has been interrupted is problematic enough; to be denied by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management for a benefit you deserve — a Federal Disability Retirement annuity — adds insult to injury.
Contact an OPM Disability Attorney who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law, and see whether we can restore the interrupted cadence of life by reversing OPM’s denial of a Federal Employee Disability Retirement application.
