If a public employee is injured and unable to perform the fundamental functions of their job, they may be eligible for a disability pension. Three different specialists will evaluate you to see if you meet this requirement. To build a stronger initial claim, you should first see your regular physician before applying for disability benefits.
To be eligible for benefits, the injury that produced the disability does not have to be related to your job. For non-service-connected disabilities, public safety and other public sector employees are eligible for a disability pension. Furthermore, people can receive both workers' compensation and disability pension benefits at the same time.
