Disability Compliance

Disability pensioners are required to comply with certain requirements and processes while on a disability pension and will be required to complete a Disability Pension Agreement as part of the application process.

Social Security Benefits

Disability pensioners are required to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. You can file a disability pension application with the Social Security Administration by calling 1-800-772-1213 or by completing their online Social Security disability application form.

Outside Allowable Earnings

Disability pensioners are allowed to earn additional income while receiving a disability pension from Metro - as long as you work within your medical restrictions The amount of income you are allowed to make is based upon the salary that you are making at the time you go on disability. Refer to the Disability Guide for more information.

Disability Questionnaire

Disability pensioners are required to complete an annual disability questionnaire. This questionnaire will be mailed to you each July and will ask about your current health status, your earned income, your Social Security status, and the status of your dependent child. It is your responsibility to fully complete this questionnaire and return it to Human Resources. If the questionnaire is not returned, you will be placed in a non-compliant status, your pension check will be suspended, and you will be responsible for paying your insurance premiums directly to Metro. This questionnaire is in addition to any re-examination process that is scheduled when the Board approves a disability pension.
