The sample is composed of 59 disabled public employees who retired between 2000  and  2014.  The  data  was  collected  through  a  questionnaire  of  socio-demographic characteristics and the SF-36v2 form in order to evaluate the retirees’ quality of life. F or the   quantitative   variables,   the   evaluations   of   absolute   and   relative   frequencies, measurements of central trends, and variability were observed. The Mann-Whitney test, Chi-square test, and Wilcoxon W test were used due to the asymmetrical distribution of the  variables  found.  The  level  of  statistical  significance  was determined  to  be  p<0.05.  Expected Results: this study will provide support to personnel management in order to implement policies for the promotion of health, illnesses prevention, and the reduction of injuries; as a result, a decrease in the rate of early retirement, higher productivity in the labor  market,  an  improvement  in  self-esteem,  and  the  decline  in  retirement  fund expenses are expected.
