AGO Opinions with Topic: DISABILITY LEAVE
AGO 1971 No. 14 >  April 14, 1971
PENSIONS - DISABILITY LEAVE - DISABILITY RETIREMENT
WASHINGTON LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS' AND FIRE FIGHTERS' RETIREMENT SYSTEM (1) A local disability board may allow a member of the retirement system who has previously been granted a disability leave, to return to duty on a conditional basis and for a limited period of time as a method of determining whether he is unable to continue his service within the meaning of RCW 41.26.120, where the existence or nonexistence of a continuing disability has not been conclusively established to the satisfaction of the board by a medical examination.(2) Such a conditional return to duty does not entitle the member to a second six-month period of disability leave for the same disability if, based upon this trial period of service, he is then found still to be disabled; if this should occur, disability retirement is the proper benefit to be granted.
