DOL stopped my normal payments to pay me for a scheduled award around the 1st week of January. They said the Scheduled Award would be for 18 and 1/2 weeks at a certain rate. Since it's been 8 weeks since they stopped the normal payments are they going to wait 18 and 1/2 weeks and pay me in a lump sum? Or should they have started the scheduled award payments every 4 weeks. I talked to my worker's comp person from my Headquarters and she couldn't give me any answer other than they will be paying me a scheduled award.

You really should have been on the payroll for February, even if the first payment was for 4 weeks. Looks like OWCP missed, the PR cutoff date for Feb, so you probably will get a back payment for seven to nine weeks versus one for two or three weeks, followed by a four weekly one. Then you are lucky, you got one regular four weekly payment, and then a much smaller finally payment for the remainder of the scheduled award, probably one or two weeks, at most, in early April.

You should get an award notice explaining the exact terms of your scheduled award.

It may be time to involve your elected representative, such as your Congressman/woman.

Kivi,

Thanks for your reply and assistance.

I talked to my Workers Comp rep at DLA HQ's and she said I should hear something from them by the end of the month. She actually sent me a phone number to call at DOL if I don't hear from them by then.
