If you are a disability annuitant under age 60 and considering returning to work, the Office of Personnel Management may find that you have recovered from your disability, if:

  • you are reemployed on a permanent basis in a position equivalent in grade and pay to the position from which you retired; or
  • you are reemployed subject to medical and physical qualification standards equivalent to those of the position from which you retired.

The pay of the position in which you are reemployed, prior to the offset of annuity, will be included as earnings in determining whether you are restored to earning capacity and your annuity must stop.
