Q. In March 2012, I received a one-time OWCP award for a 1996 on-the-job traumatic injury suffered with the post office. I had put in for this award more than once many years earlier and had been permanently stationary for years before resigning from the post office in April 2011. At 58, I am retired from the post office with 15 years. I am also a Navy veteran of 15 years, time I failed to buy back before retiring from the post office.
Beside the one-time OWCP award, I have not received any other OWCP benefits since leaving the post office. In January 2012, I applied for Social Security disability. In July, I received a Social Security disability award with monthly benefits and retroactive pay to October 2011. Will my one-time OWCP award be deducted from my Social Security disability award?
