In their over-zealousness to "attack" all IWs over-the-age of retirement they are overlooking those with whom they are wasting their time. This increase in attacks on that class of IW has been steadily rising ever since the elections of 2016. You are red-flagged if you are in your 60s and especially if you are in your 70s, regardless of any other evidence in your case file. In my own case THEY CAN'T EVEN FIND MY FILE! The only thing they have to know about me is my birthday. They simply ignore every other piece of medical evidence in the file in order to expunge me from the ranks and the tool they are using is the Constructed LWEC.

When DEMS had control of Congress for 40 consecutive years certain mitigating circumstances were considered when evaluating whether or not a retirement-aged IW was entitled to benefits "for life" if his/her injury persisted. In 1974 FECA was ordered to stop reducing or eliminating benefits simply because an IW reached the age of 70. But now they're back with a strategy that more closely resembles "Soylent Green" than the mission statement of FECA as it was instituted a hundred years ago.

Write to your US Representative and tell your story; remind him/her that this is happening.
