Disability Lawyers for Accidental Disability Retirement
As a public employee in Massachusetts, if you are injured while on the job, you may be able to benefit from Accidental Disability Retirement (ADR) rights, in addition to your Worker’s Compensation claim. If you work for the state, a city, town, municipality or another public authority and contribute to the public employee pension system, you may be eligible for ADR. One of Boston’s top disability lawyers, Steven M. Buckley will make sure you leverage all of the benefits you are eligible to receive.
Accidental disability retirement pays an injured worker up to 72% of his or her pre-injury wages. ADR are often paid for the rest of the public employee’s life, though their eligibility will be reviewed periodically. You may also be able to claim Worker’s Compensation benefits, though the full ADR allowance will be credited against them.
To be eligible for ADR benefits, you must submit an application within two years of your injury. The disability lawyers on our team will assist with the application process, as it can be quite complex. Your injury must have been sustained while performing the specific duties of your job, and you must be rendered incapacitated enough that you are unable to perform the duties of your job.
With accidental disability retirement, your health insurance will remain active, with premiums deducted from your monthly ADR benefit. You may also be able to work another job without sacrificing your ADR benefits, as long as your new position is not too similar to the one you left.
