“I lost my medical and had to retire because of my medical condition. Thank goodness I signed up! I retired at the end of March 2011 and by the time the government got around to finalizing my retirement, it was the end of November. Almost eight months to the day! The only thing that kept me going financially was NATCA’s long-term disability check.”
