Injured on job: If I remember correctly light duty is for non-work related conditions (light duty - light beer), and if the EA does not have light duty available then that is her problem, not OWCP. But, if she has a work injury that prevents her from doing her opposition at the time of the injury or when disability began and the EA takes away a limited duty position then OWCP must compensate for lost wages. It depends on what was taken away light or limited duty position.

Mr. Ed, I know and neice knows what Docket No. 11-1046 addresses. I was merely pointing out a Decision that addressed bonuses.

However, you have managed to walk all the way around the direct question without providing a definitive answer.

neice, I would report the bonus on the CA-1032 and explain the circumstance for the bonus and whether or not you know of the possible reoccurrence of such bonuses.

In fact, I would immediately report the bonus to OWCP with the circumstances surrounding such bonus.

No legal answer to your question just my humble opinion based on Docket No. 11-1046 and not wanting you to be in violation of proper procedures.

busyb:Docket No. 11-1046 addresses the issue of what needs to be reported on CA-1032 and all forms of income (as you listed) are required to reported, no question. But, it does not answer niece's question: "Is bonus money put into a different category than a raise?" Since a LWEC has been established OWCP has determined your ability to have earnings. OWCP must continue monitoring your ability to have earnings. Yes, "Bonus" are viewed as a one times payment, not a recurring continuing part of your ability to having earnings. Can you guarantee you well you get a bonus each week or each month, no. If you receive a "raise" that money will be their next week, next month, next year. A "bonus" is not a part of your recurring ability to have earnings. "Yes", all monies need to be reported to OWCP on the CA1032.

Docket No. 11-1046
Issued: August 22, 2012

In analyzing whether an employee in the receipt of FECA benefits has earnings or wages, in Christine P. Burgess, the Board noted that wages are defined as:

“Every form of remuneration payable for a given period to an individual for personal services, including salaries, commissions, vacation pay, dismissal wages, bonuses and reasonable value of board, rent, housing, lodging, payments in kind, tips and any other similar advantages received from the individual’s employer or directly with respect to work for him.”

Ed or Snowed: Do you know if my boss gave me a bonus, would that money goes against my monthly stipend I get from owcp? I work 20 hours/week and owcp pays me 20 hours/week of tax free money.

Is bonus money put into a different category than a raise?

jjmv:The coding of "Developed SA" means that OWCP acknowledges that the CA-7 has been filed for a schedule award, but the evidence on file is insufficient to make a determination as to percentage of impairment that was caused by the injury to a scheduled member of the body. There should be some action on part of OWCP to obtain the medical evidence is lacking that may be requesting additional medical evidence from you or action taken by OWCP such as sending the case to the DMA for review or sending you for a second or referee examination. I would suggest that you wait 30 days from the date the claim was placed under development for some type of action. If you see no action, be "pro-active" and write to OWCP to obtain the status. No response go up the food chain.

jjmv - If your doctor says you can't do the job, and/or you can do part of the job for limited hours (less than 40 per week), then owcp will most likely send you to vocational rehab. (But I haven't heard anything good about voc rehab).

If your doctor says you can do the job, but can only work limited hours (less than 40 per week), then owcp will pay you for the hours you can't work. ex. you can do all your job duties, but can only work 30 hours per week (then owcp will pay you 10 hours per week). You would send in a ca-7 and ca-7a to injury comp every 2 weeks.
