As an employee of Metro Government, you are eligible to apply for a medical disability benefit once you have 10 years of credited service and are no longer able to perform your work duties.
The medical disability benefits begin once you have exhausted all sick time, vacation time, comp time, and personal days that you have. This pension benefit is 100% paid by Metro; you make no contributions to this plan. If you are eligible for a normal service pension, you may not apply for a disability pension and will be required to take a normal pension rather than a disability pension.
The medical disability pension is a separate benefit from that offered if you sustain an injury-on-duty (IOD); Read more information about Metro's IOD program.
