Disability

Active members of the Police and Fire Retirement System of the City of Detroit may submit applications for duty or non-duty disability benefits to the Board of Trustees for review. Approval is based on eligibility and medical examination results.

Disability benefit amounts are contingent on disability type, employment compensation amounts, and any additional outside income not provided by the City of Detroit or PFRS. Members who receive disability benefits are subject to annual audits on additional outside earnings in compliance with the PFRS Plan Documents.

Eligibility rules and benefit calculations are different for duty and non-duty disability status. Please see our FAQ section for additional detailed information.
