Hello. I am...

Hello. I am currently out on disability from my job. I have two years until I am able to retire based on the jobs criteria. I don't plan on returning to work. Is there a way to somehow receive early retirement due to stress related leave?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

No, I haven't.

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you an "at will" employee? Do you belong to a union?

No, I'm an exempt employee.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I feel targeted and harassed at times as well.

Are you currently out on disability on a temporary basis? Have you applied for SSDI?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I'm currently on short term disability through my job. No, I haven't applied for SSDI.

Thanks for the additional information. It sounds like your employer's policy is that in two years you can retire and received a pension. Is that what you are saying? And you want to see if you can retire earlier because of stress?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Actually, I'm already fully vested for my pension. We are fully vested after 5 years of service, but you can't retire until you are 55. This is the second time I've been out for stress and was wondering if there was a way to retire early

Are you saying the company has a policy that you have to work until you are 55 years old to receive your pension?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
You can retire at the age of 55, with 5 years of service from the company. You are fully vested in your pension after 5 years of service, but, will not receive the full payout until the retirement age.

So, if you leave the job before you are 55, you will not get the pension?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I will receive my pension because I've been at the company more than 5 years.

Okay. If you can retire before 55 and still get your pension, then I do not understand the issue.
