Has anything changed? We too often “build up” that special day, forgetting that there is the “day after” and the multiple days, weeks and years which occur afterwards. And, perhaps that is the appropriate and “right” thing to do — to have the “special” day set aside. For, without it, there would merely be a continuum of unbroken days without any respite from the repetition, monotony and boredom of all of the other days.
However, if the emphasis upon that set-aside day is too pronounced, the other days which follow then become all the more stark in their contrast.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who come to realize that the day after the anticipated time brings back the same as the days before, and that a Federal Disability Retirement application will still have to be submitted despite that “special” set-aside day, it may be time to contact a FERS Lawyer who specializes in OPM Disability Retirement.
For, in the end, there are many more days before and after the anticipated time, and respites are momentary, whereas a Federal Disability Retirement annuity is for a future to secure those many days after the anticipated time.
