Patrick A. Yes, I am a rural mail carrier. I recently turned 66 and a few days later I received a letter from SS stating that my disability will change from disability to retirement. I have been separated from my husband over 20 years and I do not collect anything from his retirement SS. So if I have this correct owcp will offset my monthly benefit and not SS.

Is there a waiting period from MMI to applying for scheduled award. I have heard you can apply a year after MMI.

Thanks !

They will stop offsetting your Soc. Sec. benefit and then they will offset your OWCP payment. I take it you have reached full retirement age. Also if your wife is getting part of your Soc. Sec benefit her money will go up also. I take it that you're a FERS Employee?

I believe the offset will change. If you go to theowcpclassroom.blogspot.com you should be able to find the answer. You can contact Jesse Slade on the blog there.

I have a question? I have been on owcp since 2014. Collecting SS temp disability with owcp. I've just turned 66 and received a letter from SS....stating that they are making changes to my SS from disable to retirement. I'm not sure how this will work out with owcp. I assume that they will make an adjustment to my owcp. Please share your knowledge with me. Thank you!

Agodlywoman. I saw your posts on pen. We are not allowed to post links to for profit sites. If you haven't checked out theowcpclassroom.blogspot.com you should. It is a library of everything concerning owcp. There are articles and links for consequential injuries, as well as emotional conditions. There is also a blog where you can ask questions. The only fees would be if you hire Jesse to represent you.

i need help. been on owcp since 2005. 9 surgeries. usps has been harassed me. i have psychologist report that says i am never to step foot in a po to work again. anyway. i saw a 2nd opinion in 2015 that said limited duties of 3 hr and under. no big deal. same as my treating pain mgmt doc. postal inspectors came into the aquatic class and filmed it, along with my gentle yoga class that my doctor has prescribed. they took tape to this dr. he changed his report, said i misrepresented, and that i screamed when he turned my neck. lied. but nothing became of them trying to charge me with fraud. my treating turned the tape off, said i was doing what he told me to do for my injuries. i since told my treating not to let them into his office. he won't. they now have me scheduled with this SAME doctor on july 25th for another 2nd opinion. should i say anything? i can get his report thrown out because of what happened. he hates owcp. i'm going to record it which is legal in my state. where does it say postal employees are not to visit doctors? i can't find it. or should i act like i haven't seen him before? he'll probably recognize me. this is crazy.

Hi Wronged... M/31338 If you were discriminated against because of your disability or ANY of the listings of discrimination on the EEO WEBSITE you need to file an EEO charge- I would not hesitate as there are time limits on this stuff...I hope this helps...

Thank you for all the info and support. OWCP finally approved my rt shoulder claim. I had surgury on the 25th. I have filed a ca7 for my back pay. Do I file an eeo complaint for wrongful termination or do I file a complaint through msrb?

refuseto surrender - If you work 4 hours per day, then the po will pay you for 4 hours per day and you should be sending CA-7 & CA-7a to your HR dept for the other 4 hours per day that OWCP should be paying you. If when you got hurt you were working 8 hours per day and now your doctor only lets you work 4 hours/day due to your owcp injury which has been accepted, then owcp owes you the remaining 4 hours/day. If you have a dependent you will get 75% of your pay from owcp and if you have no dependents, then owcp will pay you approx 66% of your pay.

Refusetosurrender. You may want to check out theowcpclassroom.com for info and advice. It's rare that anyone posts on here anymore who is knowledgeable.
