Pension Law

The practice of disability pension law covers both private and public employees. In general, a disability pension provides retirement disability benefits to public or private employees who become disabled and unable to perform the duties of their job as a result of an accident or illness which results in a physical or mental disability. If you are a state of New York or city of New York public employee, you may be entitled to an accidental or ordinary disability pension if you are disabled from your job.

Most unionized private workers (construction, maintenance, etc.) may be entitled to a disability pension from their union pursuant to the bargaining agreement/contract. Whether you work in the public or private sector, you must be mindful that when filing an application for a disability pension there are usually time limitations to file the application, length of service requirements and evidentiary proof that must be presented.

The application and appeals process can be lengthy, confusing and discouraging. Hence, you should consult with an experienced pension law attorney.
