Federal Disability Retirement Case Results
Successful MS application even with work at home accommodation for technical specialist at the FDA
The Law Firm of Andalman & Flynn successfully obtained a federal disability retirement annuity on initial application for a federal employee who worked for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a Technical Information Specialist. The annuitant suffered primarily from multiple sclerosis. This case became more difficult because the agency offered the annuitant an accommodation to work from home 4 days a week. We collected medical evidence to support that the annuitant was unable to perform the job even with this accommodation. During the processing of this application, we also assisted the annuitant to obtain from the FDA, a removal from federal service due to medical inability to perform the essential duties of the job.
