Disability Retirement Lawyers for Public Employees:California Police, Teachers & Firefighters Los Angeles
Disability retirement benefits are paid to public employees who have not reached retirement age, but who have been determined to be disabled by their physician. The disability does not need to be work related. And, for certain types of public employees, such as safety officers, a work-related disability retirement can result in major tax savings over regular retirement benefits.
An example of a public employee who might be eligible for disability retirement is a 46 year old teacher who was severely injured in a car accident. Though she is much younger than retirement age, she may be eligible for disability retirement benefits if her physician determines that she is no longer capable of teaching.
Unfortunately, many deserving public employees are denied their disability retirement benefits – for a wide variety of reasons. Insufficient medical documentation, improperly filled-out forms or failure to understand complex application procedures are just some of the reasons that result in police, firefighters, teachers and other public employees being denied well-deserved disability retirement.
