Disability Retirement

If you have developed a disability, which is partly job-related, and your overall disability (industrial and non-industrial medical conditions) prevents you from returning to your job, contact Law the Firm of Rowen, Gurvey & Win.We represent California state employees whose disability retirement benefits are covered under the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (“CalPERS”). We have successfully represented many public safety sworn personnel, such as policeman and fireman.

We also represent non-safety workers, such as clerical workers, administrators, laborers, non-teaching school staff, engineers, and other employee groups before PERS and Los Angeles County Employees Retirement Association (LACERA). Many of our retirement disability cases involve clerical personnel, who have sustained repetitive strain type injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. We have successfully obtained many disability retirements for teachers covered by State Teachers Retirement System (STRS).

Many employees of the State of California, County of Los Angeles, and local agencies encounter difficulty with their disability retirement claims. Thus, it is often advantageous to have experienced professionals handle your disability retirement claims.

We represent many employees who are forced to take early retirement because a disability precludes them from returning to their same job. Many of our clients would like to return to work, but find their employer unwilling to make reasonable accommodations. Other clients make the choice to retire after consulting their physician, but encounter resistance from the state/local agency, or school district they work for.

The decision of when and how to file for disability retirement is critical. You need to be represented by an experience disability retirement attorney. The Law Firm of Rowen, Gurvey & Win has been handling California public employee disability retirement cases for over 25 years.
