Were you aware that most OWCP compensation claims that fail to be approved are typically the result of a federal employee that doesn’t know their rights? At IFWAA in New Orleans, we are dedicated to federal employee rights, compensation, and claims. Not only does the Federal Employee’s Compensation Act protect employees at the time of their injury, but it also states how compensation and medical expenses will be paid during the time of the injury or illness.
OWCP Claim Requirements
For a federal employee injury claim to be approved, the injured federal employee must be able to provide both factual and medical evidence to support the following:
The compensation claim was filed during the time frame specified by OWCP.
The federal employee that was injured, killed or became ill is covered under FECA.
The medical condition in the claim was caused by workplace conditions/hazards.
The injured employee was performing job duties when the event(s) in the claim happened.
The injury/medical condition/death was a result of the event(s) included in the claim.
