Rockland County Civil Service Disability Pensions

Civil Servants Unable to Work Need a Relentless Rockland County Civil Service Disability Lawyer

New York State workers, New York City employees and those who work for other NY municipalities are usually not sure if they are eligible for civil service disability pension payments after being laid up with a disease, illness or injury. If you can't work because of an accident injury or you've become disabled, as a New York civil servant, you most likely can draw benefits from either the New York City Retirement System or New York State and local retirement coverage. Unfortunately, getting those benefit paid out to you is another story. Without a tough Rockland County civil servant attorney by your side, you may have your Civil Service claim denied. But if the dismissive pension administrators who may have delayed or rejected your claim have to deal with us, the outcome will be different because they know we won't back down.

Applying for a civil service disability pension can be complicated

There’s a lot of work to be done. Some of the challenges people face that can prevent their claim from being successful include:

  • The application process requires extensive documentation and evidence to support your claim.
  • Meeting the eligibility criteria for a civil service disability pension can be challenging. There may be specific requirements regarding length of service, disability severity, and inability to perform job duties.
  • A successful claim requires medical records, diagnostic tests, expert opinions, and other documentation that supports the existence and impact of your disability.
  • Dealing with denials and appeals can be complicated and time-consuming.
  • There are specific timelines, filing requirements, and legal procedures that must be followed.

All these challenges can be effectively addressed with the help of a knowledgeable and experienced civil service disability pension claim attorney.
