What is used to figure your weekly rate for compensation? MMI or DOI

Neither.

It is the pay rate on the date of the injury, or the date disability began, or date disability recurred if the the recurrence was more than six months after first return to full time duty with the Feds. OWCP should choose the highest of these three rates although in many cases there is never a recurrence and the date and date of injury and date disability began are often the same date. The above statement assumes that the injured worker was not part-time, seasonal, or a temporary employee.

Cost-of-living adjustments can become applicable, but the pay rate used in a long term case tends to remain the same unless the recurrence criteria apply.
