At IFWAA in Rockville, MD, we frequently meet injured federal employees that are not aware of their rights to compensation and benefits. Any federal worker that has been injured or has become ill due to workplace conditions/hazards may be entitled to compensation under the Federal Employee’s Compensation Act and receive benefits from the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP). OWCP facilitates compensation for wage replacement, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation and benefits to dependents of deceased federal employees covered by FECA.
For an OWCP compensation claim to qualify under FECA, the injury, illness or death must have occurred while the employee was performing their federal job duties. The federal employee must also provide factual and medical evidence to validate the federal compensation claim. The claim must also be filed within the time limit declared by OWCP. Off-site incidents and those that occur while traveling may also be covered under FECA.
