Q. I have a work-related injury that led to a total knee replacement. I was taken out of my shop due to permanent restrictions and given desk duty four years before retirement. I was offered a $25,000 buyout in April and accepted with my doctor’s support. Can I convert to disability without affecting the buyout money?

A. No one who is or would be eligible for disability retirement is eligible to receive a Voluntary Separation Incentive Pay.
