Currently, when an employee gets approved for disability retirement, the approval letter is sent to DCHR OPE Retirements to process retirements paperwork and submit them to the appropriate entities. Since DCHR OPE Retirements does not counsel employees on disability retirement, EAP does, the processing and submission of the paperwork should remain with EAP. If EAP needs training on how to process the forms I'm sure DCHR OPE Retirements would be happy to oblige. It doesn't make any since that DCHR OPE Retirements are inserted into the process at the very end.
