When should I pursue my schedule award?

Return to FAQs


The schedule award is payable for permanent impairment sustained to a particular body part, that’s on the schedule. But you have to have permanent impairment. That’s not determined until you’ve reached maximum medical improvement, according to your doctor. So for instance if you injure your shoulder, you may have shoulder surgery, you may have rehab, and ultimately the doctor’ll say, “You’re about as good as you’re going to get.” Well, that means you’re at maximum medical improvement, MMI. At that point you can pursue your schedule award.
