Re: disability retirement
I've also announced our group in employment law/federal employee
websites, so it's no surprise (to me) that non-RPCVs are joining
us. Many current and former federal employees are having the same
difficulties with OWCP as we are. I think we can all learn from--
and support--each other.

Oh, it's great that you've announced this elsewhere. Pardon my ignorance and I am happy to share! This will be announced in the NY RPCV group on email next week.
- Hi gogo
The nurse has no business saying that to your doctor!!!!!
You cannot be forced to retire!!!!! That is your decision to make!
Go to federalworkerscomp.net
Read all you can & join the list if you want.
If you are not able to recover enough to do your job after one year-
it may be more-You Will NOT Be Out of Work!!!!! If you are partially
disabled for work PO must make a "suitable job offer" within your
medical restrictions. Make sure you know the requirements of
a "suitable job offer," and read about "Return to Work" in the CA-
810, EL-505, & ELM. If you are able to work some hours, OWCP must
pay the remainder. The comp will pay either 66 2/3, or 75% of your
salary if you have dependents.
If you are totally disabled for work, comp pays.
