Received my rating from DEU. I just got a check from the CA for the lump sum for the rating less my PDA with no explanation. My paperwork from DEU says that I would get payments every 2 wks. Which I would rather have even if I C&R. I haven't cash the check yet because I may want the summary rating reconsider by AD. I thought I had 30 days to decide whether I agree with the rating. Why is CA giving me a lump sum when we haven't discussed settlement options? DEU says future medical and I thought I was entitled to a 4000.00 retraining benefit and a 15% increase because my employer did not offer me any employement. They're going out of business.
