A Schedule Loss of Use award, known as an “SLU,” is an additional cash payment. The purpose of this SLU award is to compensate you for any ‘loss of use or ability’ in a body part as a result of your work injury. If you do not get back the same level of use in an injured body part, you may be entitled to an SLU award. An SLU award may be offered if you injured one of the following body parts: Arm, Leg, Hand, Fingers, Foot, Toe, Eye (Loss Vision), Ear (Hearing Loss) & Facial Scars (Facial/Neck/Scalp scars).
