What is an OWCP Schedule Award?
A schedule award is one of the three benefits available to injured employees under OWCP Federal Workers’ Compensation. A schedule awards is a payment for a permanent impairment to a body part that is listed on the OWCP Schedule.
How much does it pay?
The amount a schedule award pays will vary based on your assigned impairment rating from your doctor. This lump-sum payment is based on the OWCP Comp Rate, multiplied by the number of weeks of pay for the injured body part in the OWCP schedule, multiplied by the percentage of impairment to the injured body part.
If you qualify for a schedule award, then you will be compensated based on your impairment rating. This rating will be assigned by your doctor in accordance with the AMA Guide 6th Edition. In order to receive an impairment rating, then your injury must be at Maximum Medical Improvement.
Maximum Medical Improvement
Your doctor will determine when you have reached Maximum Medical Improvement. This means that your injury is no longer expected to improve, even with additional medical treatment.
OWCP Comp Rate
OWCP pays compensation at 66 2/3% of your pay rateif you have no dependents or at 75% if you have at least one dependent.
The table below lists the current assigned value, in weeks of pay, for each body part on the schedule.
