My application for FDR that a law firm I paid for to handle the process was returned to me as incomplete. Is this a breach?
After 28 years as a letter carrier for the USPS I found myself in a situation where I needed to apply for Federal
Disability Retirement. I decided to use a Law Firm that specializes Iin this procedure to handle
my application to ensure that all the needed information and documentation was submitted correctly. I provided them with all my medical records and visited a Doctor they recommended as well. I have already paid in full (over $4.000) for their handling of my application process. Last week the OPM sent me a letter that had to be forwarded from my old address stating that my application was incomplete. I mailed them the letter and the included check list of the missing info/doc. that was needed. They have not responded to my e-mails or voice messages since. I am very nervous.
What was the fee agreement with the law firm for? The responsibility of the law firm to complete any incomplete application depends entirely on what was agreed to.
