Subpart E. Disability Retirement
11:202 District Attorneys’ Retirement System
A member who acquires a disability, and who files for disability benefits while in service, and who upon medical examination and certification, as provided for elsewhere in this Subpart, is found to have a total disability for any cause, shall be entitled to disability benefits under the provisions of R.S. 11:1634(B) provided the member has at least ten years of creditable service and provided that the disability was incurred while the member was an active contributing member in active service. However, if the application for disability benefits is not filed while the member is in service, it shall be presumed that the disability was not incurred while the member was an active contributing member in active service. This presumption may be overcome only by clear, competent, and convincing evidence that the disability was incurred while the member was an active contributing member in active service.
