Successful emotional illness application for a librarian at the Library of Congress
Attorney Elliott Andalman successfully obtained a federal disability retirement annuity on initial application for a federal employee who worked for the Library of Congress. The annuitant suffered from emotional problems. Annuitant filed an application for a disability retirement annuity with the agency, which the agency refused to process due to insufficient medical evidence. After months of trying to get the agency to process the application, the annuitant contacted us for representation. We collected additional medical documentation and put together a new application for a federal disability retirement annuity. This time, the application was accepted, processed, forwarded to OPM and approved on initial application. We also represented this annuitant on an application for Social Security Disability benefits, which we won.
