A claim for an increased schedule award is not subject to time
limitations. If you have previously received payment for a schedule
award there is no time limit for you to for a supplemental schedule
award claimant and increased impairment and entitlement to an
increased payment for a schedule award.
In one case, the claimant was denied a schedule award in
September, 2008 and he requested reconsideration in
December, 2009. The OWCP denied appellant’s request because
it was untimely and failed to establish clear evidence of an error
in regard to the original denial.
The ECAB determined that the claimant’s request should be
considered as a claim for an increased schedule award rather than
an appeal of the previous denial since they request for an increased
schedule award was not subject to time limitations.
If you have been denied a schedule award or if you have greater
impairment at this time, you may be entitled at greater
impairment and more money. We will be happy to answer any
questions regarding a denial of your schedule award or a possible
increase in your impairment rating which will entitle you to
additional payment for a supplemental schedule award.
