Federal Workers Compensation and OPM Disability
Do you have an illness or injury that prevents you from performing the essential duties of your position? Are you an injured federal worker? Often times injured federal workers receiving federal workers’ compensation benefits may also be entitled to OPM Disability Retirement. Particularly if the claimant is entitled to a schedule award it might be in the claimant’s best interest to consider applying for OPM disability retirement.
Do you have questions about a schedule award? Is the OWCP sending you to a second opinion doctor? Has the OWCP denied your claim for wage loss benefits? Are you having trouble performing your assigned duties because of a medical condition? Do you have questions about FMLA leave?
If you need help with any of these questions, or if you have questions about FMLA leave or if you need more information about applying for OPM medical retirement, contact OPM Attorney Gregory Hall to set up an appointment to discuss your case. Attorney Hall has been representing injured federal employees since 1996.
