Thanks Ed. No LWEC. I have permanent restrictions and have worked in letter casing 4 years. With consolidations approaching I am quiet sure I will be given a letter of no work available. Appreciate your time and I guess a Ca2 will be forth coming:-(

neice:There is no such thing as an "informal WEC". If the CQS indicates that the Pay type is "WEC" it means that you are receiving compensation for partial disability. If your restrictions for work are permanent and the number of hours working are stable (number of hours working remain the same)and you have been performing the same duties for more than 60 days OWCP should have issued a LWEC decision. So if you are receiving compensation every 28 days your "Case Status" should be "PW". If this is so than a LWEC decision based on actual earnings has been issued. If you have not been working a LWEC can and will be issued based upon capable of having earnings.

Injured on Duty:One more question: Has a formal Loss of Wage Earning Capacity (LWEC) decision been issued. If so, what I have previously written does not apply. If no LWEC decision has been issued, then what I have written applies.

Injured on duty: Recurrence of Disability: This term includes certain kinds of work stoppages that occur after an employee has returned to work after a period of disability.

(1) It includes a work stoppage caused by:

(a) A spontaneous material change, demonstrated by objective findings, in the medical condition which resulted from a previous injury or occupational illness without an intervening injury or new exposure to factors causing the original illness;

(b) A return or increase of disability due to an accepted consequential injury; or

(c) Withdrawal of a light duty assignment made specifically to accommodate the claimant's condition due to the work- related injury. This withdrawal must have occurred for reasons other than misconduct or non-performance of job duties.

If you were provided a light duty position to accommodate your accepted work related condition or conditions and your employer withdraws that light duty position, that would meet (c) of the definition of a recurrence of disability. You should file a Notice of Recurrence of Disability (Form CA-2a), a copy of current medical showing that you are partially disabled and a copy of the withdrawal of the light duty position to OWCP.

Omg, I sent a letter off to my congressman on Thursday, I received an e-mail on Monday that they contacted workers comp, yesterday workers comp notified that they would work on it, today my CE called and left a message that my claim is ready for keying/payment! Thanks everyone for the suggestion to call my congressman! It worked.

Ed: yes I am currently working in a job provided for me because of my injury on the job. I don't understand the definition of a "recurrence of disability" i have a permanent injury and have met MMI. If you can explain this and advise me I would be thankful. I want to know my options if the inevitable occurs. Thanks for any info.

Injured on duty: Were you working in a position which was provided to accommodate your work restrictions due to an on the job injury? Do you know OWCP's definition of a "Recurrence of Disability"?

If plant consolidates and I am low seniority and given letter to be excessed: I have permanent injury and no job available within my restrictions but they may want me to fill out a recurrence and that would be false documentation should I fill out this information? It would not be recurrence and I would be perjuring myself?
