Bronx Civil Service Disability Pensions Lawyer

For Complex Civil Service Disability Pension Claims, You Need a Tough Bronx Civil Service Attorney

Most New York State or New York City workers and municipal employees qualify for civil service disability pensions after becoming unable to do their job. Whether due to an illness, accident or other disability, if a NY civil servant can't make ends meet after years of working for NY State, NY City or another NY municipality, we can help. With more than 90 years of experience assisting injured or infirm Bronx workers who can't go back to work, we work hard to pursue every penny of the NYC worker compensation they have coming to them.

The civil service disability pension application process is extremely complicated and difficult to navigate, particularly if you are in pain or laid up, and often too overwhelming to handle on your own. Simply understanding municipal disability pensions can be very difficult, since there are numerous types of civil service disability claims for which you could be eligible. It depends on the type of work you did, how long you worked and when. An award of benefits depends on which "Tier" applies to you, and that is determined by when you joined or reentered the New York City, New York State or local retirement system.

We can help you navigate the claims process

Filing a claim for a New York civil service disability pension can be complicated and challenging. Some of the obstacles you may face include:

  • Eligibility – You must demonstrate that you have a qualifying condition or disability that prevents you from performing your job duties. The process requires extensive medical documentation and evidence to establish the severity and permanence of the disability.
  • Strict filing deadlines – Missing these deadlines can result in the denial of the claim. It is crucial to understand and adhere to the specific timeframes to ensure that the claim is submitted in a timely manner.
  • Gathering medical evidence – Getting the necessary medical records, test results, and expert opinions can be a challenge, especially if the condition is complex or there are multiple healthcare providers involved.
  • Following all steps for your application – This involves completing various forms and providing detailed information about the disability, work history, and medical treatment. Any inaccuracies or incomplete information can lead to delays or denials.
  • Medical board examinations – In some cases, the pension board may require applicants to undergo medical board examinations to assess the extent of their disability. Preparing for and attending these examinations can be intimidating and stressful for applicants.

If your claim is denied, filing an appeal requires a thorough understanding of the applicable laws, rules, and procedures. Presenting a strong case during the hearing and effectively advocating for the disability pension can be challenging without the assistance of a skilled attorney.
