Ordinary disability retirement helps injured or ill state employees who have been working for the state for the equivalent of 10 years full-time by providing benefits if they can no longer perform their job duties.
The claims process is lengthy and can be daunting. It can take up to a year or more to receive ODR benefits, even if you do everything correctly. Your application must be approved by a three-member panel who will analyze your disability claim, including the cause of your disability and the reasons why you cannot continue working. Making a mistake on the application or providing inadequate evidence can lead to further delays, or even a denial.
