Public Employee Disability Pensions

Disability retirement benefits may be available to public employees who have experienced a serious accident. The Disability Guys Michael Kalmus Attorney At Law have assisted disabled public employees in New Jersey in obtaining the benefits to which they are entitled.
Our lawyers devote a considerable percentage of their practice to representing hurt public safety workers. Throughout the region, we've collaborated closely with police officers, firefighters, and other state safety personnel.

Who Is Eligible For Disability Benefits?

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.



If you haven't filed a case, we will help you fill out the form you need in the right way. 


The action plan helps you map out the legal strategy to receive the benefits you deserve.


Have a peace of mind and return to the life you’ve missed.

No matter what step you are at, we are here for you.
