Disability retirement benefits are available to members who become permanently incapacitated by bodily injury or illness; are unable to perform their usual job duties; and are required to retire.
There are two types of disability retirement benefits:
1. Industrial Disability Retirement
Industrial disability retirement benefits are available to members who become permanently incapacitated by bodily injury or illness caused by their job; are unable to perform the usual duties of their job; and are required to retire.
2. Non-Industrial Disability Retirement
If you have at least 10 years of creditable service; become permanently incapacitated by a non-work related injury or illness; are unable to perform your usual job duties and are required to retire, you may be eligible for a non-industrial disability retirement.
