Work Injury Compensation
Federal employees are not compensated through their state’s regular workers’ compensation programs. Instead, they receive their benefits through the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA), which was established over a century ago (1916) to protect federal employees.
FECA covers civilian federal employees in all three branches of government: executive, legislative, and judicial. FECA also covers several other groups, including federal jurors, and volunteers with some organizations such as the Peace Corps. If you are doing work indirectly for the federal government, but a private government contractor employs you, you are covered by your state’s workers’ compensation laws.
Some of the federal agencies covered by FECA are:
- Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP)
- Department of Defense (DOD)
- Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP)
- Homeland Security (DHS)
- Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
- Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
- Social Security Administration (SSA)
- Transportation Security Administration (TSA)
- United States Postal Service (USPS)
- Veterans Affairs (VA)
FECA covers all members of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE).
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
FECA offers a comprehensive benefits plan that includes:
- All medical costs (no copays or cost-sharing with your private insurance company)
- Disability coverage of two-thirds of your regular wage, increasing to three-quarters if you have dependents
- In cases of traumatic injury, you can receive the amount of your full wage for the initial 45 days
- Costs of rehabilitation that assists in returning to work
- Benefits continue for the entire duration of your disability, even if you are disabled for the rest of your life
- Cash benefit for your survivors if your injury or illness results in death
