Camryn211-
I meant the examiner who is handling your appeal. If you are not sure she has your medical then call. Sometimes documents get separated.

SPfldma- Sorry to hear about the suffering you are going through. here is some info on the Walker/Pittman class action right from the site itself

 about the Pittman Class action which used to be the Edmond Walker class

How long will it take for me to receive my settlement award?

Settlement Award checks will not be mailed out until 300 days or longer after the Notice of Final Agency Action and Claim Form and Releases are issued, depending on whether an appeal or federal court complaint is filed that challenges the validity of the Settlement. Again, this process could take years.

Snowed, are you referring to my claims examiner at OWCP? I should ask her if she has my new medical? I sent my new medical to my CE and also to the Appeals Board...yes OWCP told me they recieved it on the 16th in their central mail unit..They said it was late because my CE didnt recieve it on the 16th...I sent it to the Appeals Board back in July when I filed the Appeal...Yeah I thought the Branch of hearings and review would consider the new medical..But she told me she didn't think I had enough evidence to remand it back...Should I call her back and ask her about that?She told me if I needed to clarify anything or send new info in I could...

Did you ask the examiner if she had your current medical? You could resend it to them. It is standard for them to request a response from the USPS. Do you have proof they received it by the 16th. Even if they didn't the review process should consider the new medical.

when you apply for dis. ret. you must apply for ssi. If ssi accepts you, you get subsidized by usps, so to speak. I collect from usps for an injury. Now I suffer from arthritis everywhere. Which makes me even more disabled. I'm in my 50's. The Walker case, I sent my forms in this summer. How long before we know?

Some of you folks have been on here for a long, long time. You folks were extremely helpful guiding me thru my dis. ret. I'm hoping you can help me now. I retired several years ago (on the job injury). Recently I was diagnosed with arthritis damn near everywhere. When I get accepted for SSI do I have to give back any of my money? Also, I saw the post about the Walker payments yet there was no response. Does anybody know about these payments?

Snowed:You are correct concerning temporary assignment, but we are talking about a permanent job offer. One thing for sure, if the EA is only able to provide a temporary light duty assignment when the claimant has permanent work restrictions, the EA must provide written verification that it is unable to provide a permanent job offer. If this written verification is on file, a temporary light duty assignment can be considered appropriate.

Hello Everyone,

Does anyone know what this means...I called the hearing rep handling my Appeal at Branch and Hearings in DC...My case is Review of Written Record...I was calling to find out what the status of my case...We'll she told me that she felt it wasn't enough evidence to remand my case back...So she now has to send a letter to USPS letting them know I filed this Appeal and they had 20 days to respond...and if they respond I will get a copy of what they say and I then will have a chance to respond back...She said I should hear something in Mid January...I don't have a clue of what's going on here...I filed this Appeal in July... OMG...how long does this take...and what happens after the USPS responds? And what happens next if they don't respond? I don't understand why she said it's not enough evidence...I sent her everything ....It's there in black and white...they said I refused the job offer...That I never responded in the 30days...My R.C. Was sending them my doctors note of no work....and updating them on my Dr Narrative was mailed on June 10...certified US mail...Dead line was June 16....My benefits was terminated on June 17... Because they said they didn't receive it by the 16th....I don't get it....any advise will help......thanks

FECA pt 2-0814
"9. Temporary Assignments. There may be occasions when the EA is only able to provide a temporary light duty assignment to the claimant even though the claimant held a permanent job at the time of injury. In these instances, the penalty language of Section 8106(c) cannot be applied.
The claimant is, however, expected to work, as 20 CFR 10.5(f) defines disability as "the incapacity, because of an employment injury, to earn the wages the employee was receiving at the time of injury. It may be partial or total." If the claimant is provided with a temporary light duty assignment within his or her restrictions, total disability for the period of the assignment is not substantiated."

Snowed:In your post 29052 you stated "Whether a job is or is not a bid job is no reason to refuse a job....not after the more recent FECA changes." Can you provide a cite to support your statement?
