The general rule for filing a Federal Disability Retirement application under the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) or Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS), is that a Federal or Postal employee must file the disability retirement application within one (1) year of being “separated from Federal Service.” This is statutorily established in 5 U.S.C. 8337(b), where it specifically states that a claim may be received and reviewed by the Office of Personnel Management “only if the application is filed with the Office before the employee or Member is separated from the service or within 1 year thereafter,” and in 5 C.F.R. (“Code of Federal Regulations”) Section 844.201, “an application for disability retirement is timely only if it is filed with the employing agency before the employee or Member separates from service, or with the former employing agency or OPM within 1 year thereafter.” This is the “statutory rule” – as explicitly stated in “the law”.

Managing Fatigue in Multiple Sclerosis


Although fatigue is common among multiple sclerosis patients (85%), evaluation is difficult due to the subjectivity and variability of the complaint but it is important that fatigue is taken seriously and its management is considered carefully.

Lip Cold Sores, also known as Oral Herpes, are a very highly contagious viral infection. As many as 80% of Americans carry this virus, but many have no idea they do. This is because you can have the virus, but never have an outbreak. Lip Cold Sores can be spread to another person by kissing, even when they do not have any sign of an outbreak. This is caused by viral shedding, a process where the virus exits the body through saliva.

Many people acquire the virus as infants, when they are around a large group of other kids. When a person is infected by the virus, it is for life. There are no known cures for oral herpes, however there are many treatments that can prevent, ease and shorten the time of outbreaks. While there are many treatment options, some are very costly and work better for certain people then others.

Cold sores appear around the mouth area. They are small, but don’t let that fool you. They can be very painful and distressing.
