Successful back-problems and IBS application for USPS worker who resigned
Attorney Elliott Andalman successfully obtained a federal disability retirement annuity on initial application for a United States Postal Service (USPS) Mail Processor who had resigned due to medical conditions. The annuitant suffered from several medical conditions including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and back problems. This was a difficult case because of a lack of treatment and shortage of medical documentation prior to resignation. However, Andalman & Flynn was able to overcome these hurdles, in part, by documenting both (1) an unsuccessful work attempt after the resignation and (2) that the annuitant tried to go back to work for the USPS, but was refused medical clearance.
