on my way out-Your CE can't close your case for refusing this job offer. Upload all your medical ASAP...it is lack of medical that can close your case.

on my way out-Yes you are better than normal for caring about those people. Justice is an attribute of God, but so is Love and compassion even for the sinner.

neice: It's amazing with GOD and the GOOD that's happened in my life, yet I feel and can envision their sadness. Last week when I went for that STUPID job offer, I had to face the a--h--le sta mgr, and the b-t-- that caused me so many breakdowns. They represent 6 of the EEO'S that I've filed. She looked UGLY, she's so mean on the inside, it actually shows on the outside. and he was like, How are you doing today, my name. I waited and then spat out fine, like really, please don't show concern now, cause I don't need it now. I needed it back when my husband was crying right before he went into surgery, saying he was scared out of his mine and was so afraid to leave me alone. I'll NEVER forget that, who could? But God was there, and that's all I needed, plus my beautiful family, how lucky can I be. THX, THX, THX, for coming back.

onmywayout - Ya, it's because you have a heart. I think you're better than "normal"!

Just realize that those other people who got their "karma" back, deserved what they got, because they dished it out and probably treated alot of people lousy. That's how some people learn.... THE HARD WAY!

Yippee, Snowd, Kimmek, Neice, Agodlywoman, Rick, ya'll are all back YEAH! Qustions, first off Snowed, I called twice today to get hold of claim examiner, and she called me back, but it showed up unknown, (same as station manager), and I refuse to answer anymore of those. My breakdown I had because of him last week was enough to last me a long time, or lifetime, take your pick. Anyways I was praying for her to call to say she was approving my doctor, which the clerk that answered me the 2nd time finally admitted they did receive my 1st request 12-17, and again 1-30. They're only allowed 30 days to let me know something.
     Surprise, that wasn't it, she was notifying me that she had received the case file that I had refused the suitable job offer, as I had put I had another case that was keeping me out. How could it be suitable, when they wanted me to case for 1 hour, and my limit is 30 minutes? She said she had to look over case, and that by me refusing the job offer, she may close my case, but she was going to look at everything first. She was actually nice, and has been. She said she also was told I was retiring 3-31, and said at that time I could either go with opm or feca, but keep in mind that they would continue to try to put me back to work. I'm going for my MRI on my neck in the next few days, so that should clear that up real quick.
I'm going to be 622 before the end of the month, with 28 years and 10 months. Would you go out on p.o. disability, or regular? I don't know if I should stay on feca, I'm SICK of them and their bs. I'm also dealing with the 8 EEO's, with 3 hitting me the last 3 weeks, wish I could put in for stress, but don't want to deal with anymore paperwork than what I have right now. So GLAD to see everyone back!
     Remember the saying "What goes around comes around?" The supervisor that lied on my EEO and said he wasn't aware of my medical, and he had given me his prescription meds, and he said the handicapped bathroom door was "broken" and I had never told him in over a year about it? (LIAR!!), Anyways, they thought they were repaying him by giving him an acting station mgr job at another station. He decided to take his dog to work one day as all of a sudden he's got ptsd and he needed it. They wouldn't let him. He walked out with the dog, has filed numerous EEO's, and isn't working. He's suing them for everything. I wonder if he regrets his lies now? My lawyer s still getting him for perjury, so he doesn't have a very good case after all, if he'll lie on my sworn affidavit, they got him. (I will feel sorry however if he really needs the dog, but he's been out of the military over18 or so years, so I don't see that. My brother is getting better with his Viet Nam ptsd, not worse.
Also, the "ladies" that got me terminated from the last therapy place, they BOTH got the BOOT!! Now their own the street. I do feel sorry for one though, as she's a single mom with a young son, and she was the one that got me denied 3 out of 4 times for my pay. Anyways, in the bible GOD says "Vengeance Is Mine" When they did their hatred to me, it broke my heart, but I prayed for them and didn't wish harm, for I know GOD will help us through. I actually feel sad for all of them. Is that normal? Thought I would feel a different way than I do. Anyways THXS!!

Rick: Thx for your answer. I tried that and then some. I'm not going to worry about that anymore. It just seems that almost everyone seems to be over on that blog and I had questions I needed answered. I'll just stay here, as my life is confused enough right now. I put in for a change of doctor 12-12, again 01-30, and still NO RESPONSE. My claim examiner has got to be one of the Worst!! They keep telling me when I call in, they have 30 days. A while ago I told them there going into 90 DAYS, enough is enough!. I asked to speak to her manager. I had an appeal that will be up on May4 after a year for 7 Months of pay. The old doctor's office got me denied TWICE. Then they dropped me like a hot potato. I can't turn in this doctors narrative until he gets approved. I asked for claim examiners manager to give me a call, since she NEVER does. Only other thing I can think of is to ecomp the past dnc numbers to let them realize what I have gone through. What does anybody think?

putting this on for information. when i wrote my HR regarding my health benefits refund, which i had not received in over a year (after being forced to file a grievance and receiving $5,000 in refund), i received a reply yesterday on plain paper. NOT PO letterhead. it reads: based on previous conversations and/or correspondence, please be reminded that the health benefit refund remains unavailable to me for processing. until such time that the DOL, OWCP, makes that information available to us, i will be unable to process. this has prevented the PO from receiving the notifications or even validation if refunds were due and the correct amount. now that the agreement has been reached, it is my understanding that the information will be given again; however, i have3 no estimated date and will advise as soon as i receive notification from HQPS and/or capital metro area office. if you are entitled to the refund it will be processed when that data is available........plain paper? no letterhead? signed by her assistant for the HR mgr., which happens all the time, i get that. but i thought this was so weird.

on my way out /m11516 - I have no idea what the four or more links is. It sounds as though that person, Lu, has blocked you, but I cannot know that and really do not care about that site.

Contact the Quick Topic admin (not Lu) via the contact link at the bottom of that sites forum page.

Hello Ed and Snow and Neice and GANG

-- Feel the OWCP has a new agenda and that is to get postal workers OFF their rolls- I am NOT at MMI and have been getting treated medically and compensation waiting as we are trying to get a total knee replacement APPROVED--

 Got a Letter today FROM OWCP- NOW in Feb Dr and I had our 6 month office visit and he sent it in that very evening. This OWCP return letter states I have 30 days to get a medical report to them as the 5c is not enough.I am hoping it crossed in the mail or was not seen yet but Then he came up with questions that are NO about me going back to work and will I go back full-duty and asking will the employee be capable to perform work--

I was NRP'D while having surgery for an injury that THEIR PROGRAM created by putting me in the plant as a mailhandler. While having surgery I was told no work available,no position available!

 All of this is in my file!The USPS forced me onto the DR and I optioned it to the side because I am still being treated for my OWCP APPROVED medical conditions which are terribly degenerative. I am not at MMI as the next thing that needs to be done is an ankle replacement and a KNEE replacement- My weight NOW is BIG because of not being able to move around my knee is starting to separate from the joint also while waiting for them to approve and this has been years. I was quickly approved for the DR back in 2011- I am in pain constantly I am afraid to do any FCE evaluations as I am NOT allowed to lift much and I am not allowed to stand or walk much ETC.

 Also, now Iam a diabetic type 2 and I have stage 3
Kidney disease So as you can see not well at all waiting for them to approve my knee I had other conditions come to me.

 I am seeing many folks with the same style response when they filed their 1032 and 5c or CA-17 and I cannot help but wonder if they are being FORCED by congress to eliminate anybody who appears to be on the rolls longer than others.

postalqueen - You can't just leave. You need a doctor's letter saying you need to be out of work.

It would be best if you go to your doctor today, get your diagnosis related to your work injury for the medical record established and get your doctor's letter to be out of work tomorrow. You can find the ca-2 form on-line and can get it filled out today and bring it to work tomorrow with your doctor's letter.

Each new claim needs new medical evidence saying how your work duties caused or aggravated your injury.

I will return to work tomorrow after using 24 hrs for fmla.

When I go in and fill out a ca-2 do I leave and go home and stay home until I make a doctors appointment and go to it and he releases me to go back to work? Or do I stay at work and go to the doctor on my own time?

I know when I was originally injured I filled out a ca-1 then left, went to doctors, rehab, and was home until released back to work.

I assume I do not need any other forms if I do a ca-2 because I will still be under my original Owcp claim. Is this right?
