Federal Employees Injured on the Job
The Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) provides benefits to federal employees injured on the job. The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP)—a division of the Department of Labor (DOL)—administers FECA. FECA covers all civilian federal employees. (Separate laws apply to members of the United States armed forces.)
All members of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) are eligible for FECA benefits, as well as all employees of agencies such as the Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP), Department of Defense (DOD), Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Social Security Administration (SSA), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), United States Postal Service (USPS), and Veterans Affairs (VA).
As a federal employee, you are eligible for FECA benefits no matter how long you’ve been in your position or the specific type of work you do. If your injury occurred while you were performing the duties of your job, whether in your regular workplace, working off-site or while traveling for work, you qualify for benefits. A beneficiary’s survivors will receive FECA benefits if the beneficiary dies as a result of a job-related activity.
Get the Benefits You Deserve
Not everyone is aware that they have the right to choose their doctor for treatment. FECA affords you that right. You are not obligated to see the particular doctor recommended by your employer. Choose our clinic to be sure that your needs are met by the foremost experts in workplace injury claims and treatment.
Often when you begin treatment for a work-related injury, you’re expected to pay upfront for any costs incurred and then left to wonder when (or if) you’ll be reimbursed. Copayments or deductibles can add a significant amount of stress to an already difficult situation when you should be focused on your recovery.
If you require medication or a diagnostic procedure such as an MRI, these expenses should be covered by FECA, not by you. We will help you get your claim accepted so that all costs related to your injury are covered. If you are already out-of-pocket for any expenses, we will help you get that money back.
We provide free claims assistance. We have a thorough understanding of the OWCP requirements, and we know how to maximize the chances of your claim being approved. Contact us today, and our expert claims consultants will make sure your claim is properly prepared and filed.
