husband went out on "long term sick" which he will get paid for approx 5 months. Also age 60 & is eligible for his State retirement pension. He has 2 severe knees & afraid of replacements (longer story) He cannot continue to do duties of correction officer safely. can you be on paid leave/retirement pension & apply for disability. If he were healthy would work until at least age 62

Yes he can apply for disability while out on leave, that's what I did.The only thing is will his leave time run out before he gets an approval, if he returns to work full time and earns SGA that will hurt his case.
