What is FECA?
The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) was designed to enable injured workers to receive fair compensation for a work-related injury.
How can the OWCP help me?
Four major compensation programs are administered by the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP). Generally, these programs provide for essential wage replacement, medical care, and rehabilitation for workers who have suffered injury just like you.
What is a schedule award?
If you have completely or partially lost the use of a limb or organ, you may have the opportunity to receive a schedule award. A schedule award is a recognition that you have suffered a permanent impairment as a result of your work injury. These permanent awards are given only after a careful application process is completed. Schedule awards are only available in some cases and timing is important. We can help guide you further in this regard.
Can I receive FECA benefits and Social Security Disability benefits at the same time?
Although a worker can benefit from both of these options simultaneously, certain reductions in SSD benefits occur as a result. If you have multiple streams of benefits from different sources, it is always in your best interest to make sure that each benefit source is aware of all streams of benefits that you are receiving.
