I unexpectedly received a lump payment from SSDI that is a good chunk of money. When I contacted them (as I figured not my money). I was told that they had recalculated my payments back to 7/2012 with my OWCP payments and I had been underpaid and this is what they owed me. All well and good; but I was wondering, does OWCP consider this a lump sum payment that I have to report and not receive payment from OWCP for a couple months? or is it free and clear because it was what should have been paid to me all along and don't worry about it?

To add another layer of confusion; I have put in to switch to DR (and off OWCP) starting May 1 of this year so I'll have to contact SS and inform them of my loss of OWCP and what my payments will be on DR. As a side bar to this; has anyone on the boards switched from OWCP to DR? Was wondering how long it took for DR to start payments.

A message of interest to all current or former Federal Employees who may need home health services:

Nuclear Care Partners is an approved medical provider under the US Dept of Labor OWCP for the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA). We outreach to communities across the country to educate on available in-home medical benefits to qualifying Federal Workers who are now chronically or terminally ill and are in need of skilled healthcare in their own homes. We have found that many folks who qualify have never heard of these benefits, so our aim is to reach as many people as possible. The benefits and our services are provided at NO CHARGE to the qualified Federal Employee.

For more information, call 888-525-5111 or visit www.nuclearcarepartners.com

Thanks. -- Laura Welsh, Outreach Director lwelsh@nuclearcarepartners.com

Thanks Ed and Snowed
SSDI is no longer offset at full retirement age(new law change which took effect 12/19/15) but then converts to a regular annuity at full retirement age which OWCP will offset. So what is being said I reach full retirement age later this year, so I guess I will need to call the Soc.Sec. Administration Thanks for the heads up.

Patrick-
When you begin to receive a retirement annuity based on age from SS then OWCP will offset a portion of the annuity earned due to federal service. SSDI is no longer offset at full retirement age(new law change which took effect 12/19/15) but then converts to a regular annuity at full retirement age which OWCP will offset.

Patrick A: As it states today, it is "smoke". There has been a bill in Congress to reform OWCP and yes, one of things is that when you reach a certain year you will be moved to the OPM annuity rolls. Do I think this will pass and be signed into law - NO.

I read somewhere, that once a OWCP Claimant reaches the age of Sixty five that the OWCP is lowered and their Soc, Sec. is raised. Is some body just "Blowing Smoke" or is that true?
Thank you, also hop you all had a great New Year.
