Generally, you must decide which benefit is most advantageous for you
and elect to receive
that one. If you decide you want to receive Office of Workers'
Compensation Programs (OWCP) benefits, payments from the Office of
Management will be suspended. But, if your OWCP benefits stop, you
can ask us to pay your disability benefit.
You can receive an OWCP Scheduled Award and the Office of Personnel
Management benefits at the same time.
Contact us to tell us if you are awarded workers' compensation
and see if you need to make an election between benefits.
Refer to the Office
of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP) for additional information
about workers' compensation benefits.
