Public Employee Disability Retirement

Public sector workers who suffer an injury on the job that prevents them from performing their essential duties, or who become ill due to a hazard they were exposed to on the job are entitled to accidental disability retirement under Massachusetts law. This benefit provides a retiree with a pension of 72% of their regular pay prior to their injury.
