National Guard dual-status technicians are a unique type of federal employee. They are civilians who work for the National Guard. Their jobs range from helicopter, airplane, and tank mechanics to clerical and support workers. Unlike other federal employees, National Guard dual-status technicians are required to maintain military status as a condition of their civilian position. Most federal employees are covered by Title 5; however, dual-status technicians are covered by both Title 5 and Title 32 (known as the Technician Act). The Technician Act requires dual-status technicians to wear a military uniform as a condition of their employment; leave their civilian position if they can no longer meet their military requirements; and exempts the workers from overtime pay, seniority, and Merit Systems Protection Board rights that other federal workers have. Competitive technicians are civil service and are not required to maintain military membership in the National Guard.

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 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.
