National Guard Technician Branch

This page provides essential information, forms and reference materials for Federal Technicians.

National Guard Technicians of the Army and Air National Guard represent an essential part of the federal workforce. Federal employees provide the day-to-day continuity in the operation and training of Army and Air National Guard unit members.

The National Guard workforce is comprised of military technicians, competitive technicians and Active Guard Reserve (AGRs). Military technicians are required to maintain military membership in the National Guard in order to retain employment. Military technicians perform full-time work in their units, perform military training and duty in their units and are available to enter active military service at any time their unit is called to active duty.

The state Adjutant Generals, subject to federal regulations, are the designated employer of technicians. The Department of Defense, the Army and the Air Force, and the National Guard Bureau all oversee dual-status technicians.

Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) passed in 1916
Provides compensation to civilian employees of the US for disability due to personal injury or disease sustained in the performance of duty.

Provides benefits to dependents if a work-related injury or disease causes death.

Funded through agency charge-backs.

Log on to for more information about FECA.

FECA Overview
FECA is administered by the Office of Worker’s Compensation Programs (OWCP), U. S. Department of Labor. Each employing agency is serviced by a District Office; Hawaii is serviced by the San Francisco District Office (#13).

Individual cases are protected under the Privacy Act. Only employee, approved representative and agency may have access to information concerning compensation claim.

HIPAA does not apply to OWCP or employing agencies as it relates to information concerning the compensation claim.

No one may require an employee or other claimant to waive his/her right to claim benefits.

FECA is a non-adversarial system. Disputes under FECA are resolved through informal conferences or formal reconsideration at the district office level, through administrative hearings, or review by the independent Employees’ Compensation Appeals Board whose decision is final.

Benefits provided under FECA constitute the sole remedy against the United States for work-related injury or death. A Federal Employee of surviving dependent is not entitled to sue the United States or recover damages for such injury or death under any other law.
