If OWCP denies your claim for compensation, it’s not the end of the world, nor is your journey towards compensation over. The government set in place an appeals process known as OWCP reconsideration which makes it possible for you to file an appeal in order for your case to be looked over once again with you presenting a compelling argument in front of the OWCP board which may help you get compensated if it checks out.

OWCP Appeals Process – What Is Available To You
First of all, we would like to stress that receiving a denial is not the end of the line with regard to your compensation as an injured federal worker. This is just a bump in the road, and you still have inalienable rights as a federal worker. Appealing the decision for OWCP deciding to deny you your compensation as a legitimate injured federal worker can take on a number of forms: you may ask that you be provided with the record of determination documentation so your best OWCP attorney can take a look at it and chart a way forward. Second, you may ask that you be granted an oral hearing with officials from OWCP, or third, ask that they reconsider their decision. Obviously, any of these steps should not be done independently; asking for help from an experienced injured federal worker advocate will be the way to go so you don’t get shot down a second time due to a minor thing in your medical report that can be fixed via a doctor’s visit or two.
How Long for OWCP Reconsideration? The Countdown Starts NOW
Please be advised that your right to appeal an OWCP denial starts from when your denial letter is sent out; this means that you’ll be working under a tight deadline to get everything done right.
