Good morning, My name is ***** ***** I am another Attorney here on JustAnswer and I will be glad to Answer your questions. Please keep in mind that the Answers I give you are based on California law and although I might not agree with the law governing your case, I have an ethical obligation to give you only correct Answers under California law so that you are able to plan your steps accordingly, You stated that you are going to inform your employer that you want to retire from nursing and receive disability benefits, Is that correct ? 2. Are you presently receiving disability benefits ? 3. When do you anticipate retiring from the nursing field and will you have reached age 65 at that time, or are you already 65 years of age ?4. Is the County you worked for telling you to continue to work and not to retire ?5. You stated, "I would like to retire with disability. The county which I worked refused to retire me w/disability...." When you stated, "retirement benefits", were you referring to some type of pension plan that the County has for its employees, or were you referring to ***** Disability Benefits ? Thank you and I look forward to your reply, I may still have some additional questions because I would like to cover all possibilities, so I hope you do not mind, Okay ? :) ANDREA ANDREA

Personal Injury Lawyer: Andrea, Esq., Attorney replied 3 years ago
Good morning, and Thank you for your additional information, 1. Does your employer provide you and other employees with disability benefits and retirement benefits ?? 2. If so, have you contributed any money towards the disability insurance or to an employee pension fund, or were they totally funded by the employer ? 3. If you were to retire now, what would be the source of your disability benefits - Your employer's disability benefits, or a pension fund funded by the employer ? I apologize for the questions, but I would like the Answer I give you to cover all possibilities so that you know exactly what your rights are, Thank you and I look forward to your reply, ANDREA
