Thanks: 1 times
Can anyone let me know what salary OWCP will use to calculate my schedule award? I’ve been on comp 2 1/2 years because of multiple surgeries (every 6 months I’ve had to have an operation) related to my injury. I am electing to OPM retirement in the Spring of next year. Will they use my salary at the time of my injury or do they use the comp rate I get now (gone up with COLA). Thanks for your help! Trying to plan a future here...

They use the last wage you were being paid when you went out on permanent disability.
