I have been declared permanently disabled so know I will not be recalled to duty. I have been assisted by the fed rep but he seems to agree with the HR manager. I thought the IOD procedure was covered by the Police (Injury Benefit) Regs 2006 and Reg 43(1) states should get paid from the date I retired. Am I wrong?
Hi everyone, Just hoping someone can give me a bit of correct advice on the following. I was medically retired in 2005 having been diagnosed with PTSD and secondary depression. I was very ill. I got an ill health pension. I did not realise until last year that I should be in receipt of an IOD award. I applied for one and have recently been informed that I will get one but that it will only be backdated to last year when I applied. The police authority were aware of my claims that it was caused through work when they retired me, Several psychiatrists have backed up my claims over the years. I wish to challenge the date of backdated award and believe that it should be from the date I retired because as stated they knew at that time that I was claiming the injury was caused through work. I have read the Police (Injury Benefit) Regs 2006 which seem to indicate that I should be paid from the time of my retirement. Anyone have any knowledge or thoughts please? Thanks very much.
