Or, perhaps a more appropriate title might be, “The value of everything”. There has been an explosion of discussions in recent times, especially during the pandemic, of the “value” of things — from human relationships to the careers and work we engage in.
The older generation has questioned the “work ethic” of the younger generation, who have in turn responded with a philosophical query: “What is the point of all of this if we hate what we do?”
Massive turnovers have occurred, and a paradigm shift has resulted on the scale of Thomas Kuhn’s thesis, but applied to the general population, as equally significant as the 16th Century Copernican Revolution which turned the geocentric universe on its head.
Are young people just lazy, or do they have a point? Is there value in all work, or should work be viewed as a means to a greater end? And beyond that, how do we assess the value of anything, and is there a universal principle to guide us all?
One thing is for certain — and that is, that anything of value is that which is worth fighting for. At the most primitive level, how hard we fight for something reveals the underlying value of that something.
Now, whether or not the ascription of value we have rendered to an object or principle is right or wrong, may differ in opinions; nevertheless, at its most basic construct, it is a beginning point to ponder.
For Federal and Postal employees who have filed, or are intending to file, for Federal Disability Retirement benefits under FERS, the value of securing a lifetime annuity will be determined by how hard you want to fight for it. To that end, you will likely need the assistance of a FERS Lawyer who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law, as the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) does not easily issue an approval for a Disability Retirement application.
Contact today an OPM Disability Retirement Lawyer who practices exclusively in fighting on behalf of Federal and Postal employees to secure your right to Federal Disability Retirement benefits under the FERS system, and consider the value for that which you are fighting for.
