“One of the benefits of NALC membership is access to a highly experienced specialist who can advise injured workers on their claims at no expense to the member.
While injured workers are not required to have a representative to file or process their claim, they do have the option to request a representative at any time in the life of their claim.
NALC employs nine regional workers’ compensation assistants (RWCAs) who provide expert advice and representation in the OWCP claims process. RWCAs have extensive training in the FECA claims process and with the sixth edition of AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment that is used in calculating schedule awards.”
