In New York City, The Sanders Firm, P.C. represents clients applying for or appealing decisions related to accidental disability retirement pensions in connection with civil service law. Accidental disability must conform to specific parameters. The accident must have occurred on the job, the claimant must no longer be able to perform their job duties, and in order to qualify the accident must be completely unexpected and out of the ordinary. It must not result from the performance of routine duties associated with the claimant’s normal activities.
In applying for an accidental disability retirement pension, you want to make sure that you are following each necessary part of the process. In addition, you need to confirm throughout the entire application and hearing process that you do indeed qualify for an accidental disability retirement pension.
