    Default California 7 Provisionaly Approved

    Im out of work since July 15th on a CA 2. OWCP Approved the CA 2 and I faxed in my CA 7'S AND THE system has said it has been PROVISIONALY approved and will be issued after final certification. This was October 10th 2017. How long does that process take and what does it entail. Y so long and not a day or two?

    You are posting in the Pennsylvania section. You are much more likely to receive a response if you post in the California section.

    Yes it is. I'm a letter carrier. I was injured 6/20/2017. My CA 2 for occupational disease was accepted 9/14/2017. I turned in all CA 7's from the pay period of 6/20 till 9/15. In the system the CA 7's have been provisionally approved and will be issued after final certification. This was Wednesday. How long is final certification and what does it entail? I hear that the cut off is Tuesday.

    Sorry. I think I am caught up now. You are a federal employee. Your claim would not be handled under PA workers' compensation law but rather federal workers' compensation law. There are only a hand-full of lawyers in the state that handle federal cases, and I am not one of them. I don't know how much you are going to find online, but you may get some information at http://www.owcplawyer.com/ or you could call him Monday for a consult. I have referred federal cases to him in the past and have a very favorable impression. I am not in any way affiliated with him, but Tony-if I have violated the solicitation rule, please let me know.

    Here's a repost of my response to this question from another thread.

    It means that your Claim for Compensation has been approved and waiting final review and certification.
    You should hear something within 14 days but it could take as long as 90.
    I would say if you don't hear anything in 30 days, submit a request in writing and ask why.
    Be sure to continue filing Form CA-7 every two weeks until you're advised that it's no longer necessary.

    Disability for Work
    The FECA provides wage loss benefits for periods of disability that are due to a work related injury or illness. All periods of wage loss must be supported by medical reports demonstrating that you are disabled for work.
    If compensation is approved and you begin receiving compensation payments from this Office, you should continue to submit Form CA-7 every two weeks, unless you are notified by this Office that this is no longer necessary.

    Here's a good blog on this topic:
    Schedule Awards
    By: Snowed
    When claiming a schedule award, a claimant needs to submit a CA-7 and the appropriate medical report to OWCP. Schedule awards are often put on the “back burner” for claimants that are not without other income, therefore a claimant needs to be proactive in pushing their claim along. Although I have not found a guideline in OWCP literature, OWCP internal guides are 90 days for processing a schedule award. This is a rarity however, and suggests that if OWCP does not respond within the 90 days, then further action be taken such as writing to the District Director for the status of the claim and reason for the delay.

    Division of Federal Employees' Compensation (DFEC)

    8. Schedule Award Decisions.
    After the payment has been certified, the CE should promptly issue a formal decision outlining the award details. Form CA-181 Award of Compensation (or equivalent) should be used.
