WORKERS COMPENSATION PROGRAM (OWCP)


Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) passed in 1916

Provides compensation to civilian employees of he 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 https://www.dol.gov/owcp/dfec/laws.htm for more information about FECA.

FECA Overview

FECA is adminstered 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-adversial 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.
