Thank you for pointing that out Mr McGill, I hadn't thought about the possiblity of the backpay. My wife had her yearly checkup with a retina specialist yoday, condition is stable but hasn't improved.
A bit of good news.There was a letter from OPM that arrived today stating her FERS disability request has been approved. For those interested, we submitted paperwork on 3/26/16. So, roughly five months. She does still have an active grievance through her Union. But, she's not sure when a ruling will take place.
Is it possible to continue the grievance, eeoc claim, or other litigation while collecting FERS disability?
