Choosing Between Duty Disability Benefits and Retirement Benefits

Lindsey Rowland looks into the camera and speaks.

If you are injured on duty and you’re close to retirement age, you may be trying to decide whether or not to pursue a retirement benefit or a Duty Disability benefit. We can help you with that process. There are many different benefits that you may be entitled to, including workers’ compensation and PERA/MSRS Duty Disability benefits.

The benefits vary significantly depending on whether you retire or you pursue Duty Disability benefits, so call us for more information.


Even if you are past retirement age, you may still be eligible for what is called Healthcare Continuation benefits under Minnesota Statute §299A.465. If you are thinking about retiring or pursuing a Duty Disability benefit, whether or not you are entitled to healthcare continuation may be an important part of your decision.
