Public Employee Pension Appeals

The New Jersey Public Employee Pension System has numerous complex rules and regulations concerning the qualification and collection of disability pension benefits when an employee is either injured on the job and cannot continue employment; or is stricken with a catastrophic illness or becomes injured outside of work and can no longer continue with public employment. When such an unfortunate situation arises, the public employee may be entitled to either “accidental” or “ordinary” disability pension benefits under the rules and regulations of the State of New Jersey, Department of the Treasury, Division of Pensions and Benefits. However, often disability pension benefits are unjustifiably denied, or the public employee is approved for disability retirement benefits that are lower or not commensurate with the accident or injuries sustained. If such a situation arises, the attorneys at Crivelli, Barbati & DeRose, L.L.C. are prepared to file your appeal and appear before the retirement system’s Board of Trustees or Office of Administrative Law to argue your case.
