Re: Provisional Approval of a Scheduled Award
I don't know, you haven't provided enough details.
Have you filed a form CA-7?
a. If an initial CA-7 is received immediately following the COP period, the CE may use the authority provided by the FECA to approve a payment for a period not to exceed 15 days into the future (15 days post termination of COP), if disability for the period is medically supported and the employing agency verifies that the claimant has not returned to work at the time the payment is processed.
Are you MMI?
If so, this is the scheduled award - if not, it's for Total Temporary Disability (TTD) or Lost Wage Earning Capacity (LWEC)
Go through the links I provided and read carefully, they should provide answers to any questions you may have.
