DISABILITY RETIREMENT RECONSIDERATION
Our client had been diagnosed with a plethora of ailments to include chronic pain, fibromyalgia, cervical DDD, spondylosis, sciatica, migraine headaches, and many others. As a result of these ailments, our client began having difficulty performing the essential duties of her position with the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA).
Our client initially received accommodations only in the form of a stool or chair. As this accommodation did not resolve her problem, our client stopped working for DeCA, and she was placed on leave without pay status. Upon submitting the Disability Retirement Statement and Application, our client received a denial letter from the Office of Personnel Management. Our client was ultimately removed from her position with DeCA due to the alleged inability to perform her job duties.
After retaining the Edmunds Law Firm to fight for her, we were able to submit a Request for Reconsideration of Disability Retirement. Our firm was able to provide additional explanation and supporting documentation of our client’s disabilities to the Office of Personnel Management. On February 3, 2020, we received a favorable decision approving our client’s Disability Retirement Pay.
