OWCP representation for NALC members

March 2022
“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.”

    There was discussion prior to the start of the pandemic of the APWU doing this. Never materialized, possibly due to the pandemic. With so many members nation-wide submitting OWCP claims due to Covid, we may have missed the boat on something that our members really needed.

    Perhaps we should have filled the Human Resources Director position when Sue Carney retired, instead of bringing in an army of assistants to….. every department at APWU headquarters.

    PLEASE, someone put forth a Resolution at National Convention to compel APWU HQ to do similar!
