Long Island Civil Service Disability Pensions
Disabled Civil Servant Who Can't Work Anymore? Call a Long Island Civil Service Disability Lawyer
Anyone who works for the State of New York, New York City or other New York municipalities may be eligible for civil service disability pension payments if he or she is unable to work due to a disease, illness or injury. If you have to leave your job because of an accident injury or disability, as a New York civil servant, you should be able to draw benefits from either New York State and local retirement coverage or the New York City Retirement System. Sadly, being eligible for civil service disability benefits and collecting them are two very different issues, as the process of applying and obtaining payments can be complicated and lengthy. Unless you have a Long Island civil servant attorney fighting for your rights, you will probably have your Civil Service claim denied. Intimidating pension administrators will often delay or reject a claim. But with an experienced attorney on your side, you can improve your chances of getting desired results.
