Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA)
The United States Government provides benefits to civilian federal workers who have been injured on the job. These benefits include, without limitation, disability wage replacement, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation, permanent disability and disfigurement and even death benefits for surviving family members. For a majority of federal employees, these benefits are set forth in the Federal Employees Compensation Act of 1971 — which is better known as “FECA”. Any workers’ compensation benefits you seek must be pursued in accordance with the rules and procedures outlined in FECA. The provisions of FECA are different from state workers’ compensation laws and are complex.
Some of the agency employees covered under FECA include, without limitation, the United States Post Office, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security, Federal Bureau of Prisons, Internal Revenue Service, Social Security Administration, Department of Justice, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Agriculture, National Park Service, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Environmental Protection Agency and many others.
Our firm handles all matters related to such claims and will work diligently to gather and properly support, with appropriate expert medical and legal evidence, everything required to successfully pursue your claim for benefits. Let us help you with proper claim filing, temporary total disability payments, schedule award requests, terminations, reconsiderations, modified duty opportunities, vocational rehabilitation, medical disputes and all opportunities where you are being denied what is rightfully yours. We intend to aggressively pursue your claim with the OWCP and fully protect your rights. We do not want you to go through this alone.
