Westchester Civil Service Disability Pensions Lawyer
Civil Servant Who Can’t Work Due to Injury or Illness? Call a Westchester County Civil Service Lawyer
New York State workers and New York City and other NY municipality employees are often unsure whether they are eligible for civil service disability pension payments after becoming unable work due to a disease, illness or injury. If you’re laid up due to an accident injury or are in any way disabled, as a NY civil servant, you very likely have benefits waiting for you through either the New York City Retirement System or New York State and local retirement coverage. However, actually obtaining those benefits can seem impossible and overwhelming without the help of a tough Westchester County civil servant attorney by your side. We’re not intimidated by pension administrators who may have delayed or denied your claim, and we will fight hard for what is rightfully yours.
You Need a Tough Attorney for Your Civil Service Disability Claim
For over 80 years, we’ve been helping Westchester County civil servants tackle the complex civil service disability claim process, from understanding municipal disability pensions to figuring out which types of civil service disability claims are applicable to each specific case. Potential benefits depend on the “Tier” you’re in, which is contingent on your job type, length of employment and retirement system membership. We also explore any workers compensation, Social Security Disability and negligence lawsuit claims for which you might be eligible, ensuring you get every penny you are owed by the State.
