I've read that legislation was proposed to limit the age of LWEC to Full SS Benefit level (66)

Was the bill ever passed? Is there an age limit on benefits?

Title V: Federal Employees' Compensation Act - Workers' Compensation Reform Act of 2014 - (Sec. 502) Amends the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) to revise benefit payments for FECA enrollees.

Reduces FECA benefits for totally disabled enrollees to 50% of their pre-disability pay upon the enrollee reaching full retirement age, as defined in the Social Security Act.

Exempts any enrollee who: (1) has attained retirement age by the date of enactment of this Act,

(2) is an individual who has an exempt disability condition,

or (3) is a member of a household that meets eligibility requirements for the supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP).
