Benefits for Surviving Dependents

When a federal employee is killed in the course of employment or dies of an employment-related illness, his or her dependents may be able to receive benefits under the FECA. Eligible family members usually include the spouse and/or minor children of the deceased.

Frequently Asked Questions

I was injured on the job. How do I file a claim?

If you are still employed by the Federal agency where you worked when the injury occurred, submit the claim through your employing agency. Be sure to keep a copy of everything for your records. Your agency will complete their portion of the CA-1 or CA-2 and submit the entire packet to the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) district office. OWCP will advise you of the claim number which has been established. The district office will review the information submitted and will determine if there is sufficient information to adjudicate the claim. If there is insufficient information to adjudicate the claim, they will send you a letter advising of the additional information needed.

If you are no longer employed by the Federal government, you should submit the completed form to the Federal agency where you last worked when the injury or disease was sustained.

Is there a timeline for filing a claim?

The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) provides that a claim for compensation must be filed within 3 years of the date of injury. For a traumatic injury, the statutory time limitation begins to run from the date of injury. For a latent condition, it begins to run when an injured employee with a compensable disability becomes aware, or reasonably should have been aware, of a possible relationship between the medical condition and the employment.

How do I claim compensation for the wages lost due to my injury?

If your employing agency has enrolled for electronic submission of forms via ECOMP. You need to provide medical documentation supporting any periods of disability claimed. Your agency will complete their portion of the CA-7 and submit it and the medical documentation to OWCP. OWCP will determine if there is sufficient information on file to pay compensation for the periods claimed or if further information/development is needed.

How do I buy back the leave I took for my injury?

If you used leave to cover period of disability resulting from the accepted injury, you can apply to your agency to buy back your leave. Each agency establishes its own rules for whether they allow leave buy back (LBB), timelines for submission, etc. If your agency does allow leave buy back, to request a LBB, you need to complete a complete a CA-7 and check box B in section 2. You also must sign form CA-7b “Leave Buy Back (LBB) Worksheet/Certification and Election,” after it has been completed by your employing agency.

I was a little apprehensive about hiring these federal work comp reps, in December 2016 to represent me regarding my U.S. Postal Service, Federal Worker’s Compensation Claim, only because I couldn’t meet with them in person to discuss my case.

They quickly won me over with their professional expertise, knowledge of the mirage of confusing federal forms, that I couldn’t understand, along with his dedication for helping people and obtaining justice for the injured, turning what seemed like an impossible task, to a rightful outcome.

I have been very pleased with the representation that this group has provided me with my Federal Workman’s Compensation, Federal Retirement Disability and Social Security Disability claims.  They have been proactive and extremely knowledgeable in these processes.  Due to the complexity of the process and often duplication of requests it has been exceedingly helpful to have them representing me.  They thoroughly answers any questions and explains the process in detail.  The time frame for these claims is often long and I cannot imagine navigating it without legal assistance.  They have years of experience and I would highly recommend them to anyone filing Federal Workman’s Compensation or Disability Retirement.
