Filing Claims with ECOMP
ECOMP Quick Reference Guide
The Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) provides compensation benefits to civilian employees of the United States for disability due to personal injury sustained while in the performance of duty. The Act also provides for compensation for employment-related disease.
Benefits available to injured employees include rehabilitation, medical, surgical and necessary expenses. FECA provides compensation to dependents if the injury or disease causes the employee's death.
FECA is administered by the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP, U.S. Department of Labor, located in 12 district offices throughout the United States.)
