does anyone have an answer?
I am new to this forum, and not sure how much info to give so I will try to be brief. I live in washington state worked for the usps ( united states postal service) and suffered an arm injury that the job duties caused I have an accepted claim, and have recieved benefits of 2100.00 a month for the last 4 yrs. i want to know when to apply for my shedule award?

thank you for
any advice
I am sorry I have no Idea... some else might.... I just didnt want you to think you were being ignored...Have you spoke with your union rep?
........I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself......

federal comp will want an rating when you have reached MMI before calculating an award:

When an injured worker has permanent loss of use of certain body parts or organs, s/he may request a schedule award by submitting a CA-7 Claim for Schedule Award and an impairment rating completed by her/his treating physician. 20 C.F.R. §§ 10.103, 10.404. The impairment rating can only be completed after maximum medical improvement has been reached and must be in accordance with the 6th Edition of the American Medical Association Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, referencing the appropriate tables, and citing the date of maximum medical improvement. Impairment ratings may be done in a narrative format.

Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
There you go... I'm glad that someone has an answer... thanks 1171!
