Disability Retirement for Federal & Postal Employees: The Here and Now

Ultimately, that is what matters; it is that which is really real; it is the only thing which keeps a person going.

We can become entrenched in the past and remain embroiled in the hurts of our past — of a chaotic childhood, a devastating experience in youth or a traumatic period in early adulthood leading to a post-traumatic paralysis; or, one can submit to the fear of the future — of employment lost, careers destroyed, old age being anything but the sunset of comfortable lives, etc.

Past and future — too much focus on either robs one of the enjoyment of the here and now.  For, it is the present encounter with reality which determines the phenomenology of an existential meaning — what we feel, believe, think and do.

Thus, if a medical condition prevents us from enjoying the here and now, then all meaning is lost to the past or future.

If you are a Federal or Postal employee who can no longer perform one or more of the essential elements of your present Federal or Postal position — of the “here and now” — contact an attorney who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law and begin the process of trying to regain the here and now, thereby putting aside past traumas and future worries by obtaining a Federal Disability Retirement annuity here and now.

Sincerely,

OPM Disability Retirement under FERS: Sparring

One’s sparring partner is supposed to sharpen your skills and prepare you for the actual event.  Whether it was the sparring partner which enhanced your skills, or the event itself which prepares you for the next one, is a debatable issue.  Is it possible that the sparring itself teaches you bad habits — especially if your sparring partner possesses greater skills than you do?  Is a sparring partner a “partner” if he actually beats you in preparation for the event for which you are preparing?

Proper preparation in any endeavor is the key to success; yet, the anomaly is that, it is the event itself, in whatever form, which is the truest way of preparing for the next event; and that is where “experience” counts, no matter the sparring partner or any other methodology of preparation embraced.

For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that the need to begin preparing an effective Federal Disability Retirement application under FERS becomes evident, the key to the whole thing is to get together with an expert “sparring partner” — an attorney who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law.

There is no substitute, in the end, for experience and preparation; and in order to prepare, formulate and file an effective Federal Disability Retirement application with OPM, you need to contact the best sparring partner available — an experienced Federal Disability Retirement Lawyer.

Sincerely,
