FECA Laws Protect Federal Workers
FECA laws were established for the protection of federal workers more than a century ago. These laws exist to protect you against financial hardship that could result from losing the ability to provide for yourself and your family should you suffer an injury or illness while on the job.
FECA laws also guarantee that you have certain rights upon recovery. When (or if) you can return to work, your employer is required to treat you as if you had never been away, concerning all benefits that are based on the length of time you’ve been employed.
Under FECA, you are eligible for benefits covering all expenses related to your workplace injury, including:
- 75% of your pre-injury wage if you have dependents (two-thirds of your wage if you do not have any dependents)
- 100% of your wage for the first 45 days in some cases of traumatic injury
- Medical treatment costs, including supplies and transportation to receive care
- Rehabilitation services to help you return to work
- Your benefits last for the duration of your disability and benefits will be paid to your survivors if you do not recover
