I am diagnosed bipolar, receive disability from the military

I am diagnosed bipolar, receive disability from the military for the condition, and take medication to help me sleep. My medications leave me groggy and unable to drive to work until later in the morning. I have asked my employer for a modified schedule where I come to work later and stay later. He has said no. He is aware of my disability. Do I have a case? Is a modified work schedule considered a reasonable accommodation?

Should/ can I assume that this issue is behind me?Thanks

Not sure if this is age discrimination or not. I received an

Not sure if this is age discrimination or not. I received an email from my employer, General Electric, around June 1st, notifying about 268 employees that they are eligible for a Voluntary Incentive Retirement Plan, offering one half of annual salary for people who accepted the plan and elected to retire on July 31st. Although I had about two months to train someone, my boss considered my position critical and would not let me accept the retirement package, with no offer of any retirement package in the future. He wanted me to stay an extra couple of months, with no incentive to stay except my normal salary. Because I was ready to retire and saw no reason to stay, i elected to retire on June 30th. I have no idea if I was the only one who was refused this offer because HR would not let me know. I am 68 years old and was ready to retire. Do I have a case for receiving any compensation on my retirement?

In my last 6 months I had a new manager who worked agressivly to get me to leave, I earned Exceeds Expectations for 3 1/2 years then in the last 6 months after reciveing a superior rating on all 3 of my annual goals, she gave me an overall rating (subjective) 'Needs Improvement" which prevented me form reciving the annual CIP performance bonus ($15,000. to $23,000). Two days later I was notified my position was bing eliminated in 60 days, Merch 25th. She then hired her former co-worker (same level as me) and smoking buddy from her prior company. My responsibilites were given to him and a few others. I am 64 he is 30s/40s as is the Manager. As of 5/31 I am at Anthem as a Performance Audit Manager.
