The Public Employees’ Retirement Association (PERA) is a program intended to provide disability benefits (as well as other benefits) to certain government employees in Colorado. As with other disability benefit programs, however, there are some specific eligibility requirements for applying for PERA disability benefits, and meeting these requirements is critical to obtaining benefits.

Below, we will highlight the primary eligibility requirements for applying for PERA disability benefits. If you have questions about or need any assistance with obtaining PERA disability benefits, don’t hesitate to contact Denver Disability Lawyer Shawn E. McDermott.

When people meet all of these eligibility requirements and successfully apply for PERA disability benefits, PERA officials will review the application and forward it to Unum Insurance for further review if the application has been approved. Because, however, the application process can be complicated and tricky, it’s advised that applicants work with an experienced attorney to have the best chances for approval.
