March 1st in Federal Disability Retirement, Our Clients Wins.
The Attig Law Firm recently learned that its client was successful in his application for disability retirement under FERS, and that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has granted our client’s application for disability retirement.
The federal employee was a FERS employee of the Department of Veterans Affairs. He worked as a senior supervisor handling issues related to Human Resources, and his severe limitations prevented him from performing the duties of that position. Due to the nature of his work and disabilities, further details will not be publicly posted.
Due to special circumstances and the extreme nature of the disabilities, attorney Chris Attig asked OPM to expedite the application for disability retirement. OPM granted the disability retirement application within three (3) months of the date that it assigned a Claims number.
