Schedule Awards under FECA
A schedule award is a payment for a permanent partial impairment to specific body parts. Once you have reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) and are no longer in receipt of compensation for wage loss, you qualify for this benefit. There is no deadline to file for a schedule award.

|SL#||Body part [“member”]||# weeks:|
|(11)||any other toe||16|
|(13)||loss of hearing|
