Workers' Injury Compensation

Workers' Injury Compensation

Federal Employee Compensation Act (FECA)

The FECA is the exclusive remedy by which civilian employees of the U.S. government may obtain disability, medical, and/or survivor benefits from the Federal government for work place injuries and employment related diseases/illnesses.

FECA is administered by the Department of Labor (DOL), Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP) located in 12 district offices throughout the United States.

All entitlement decisions are made by DOL/OWCP and not by the Department of the Navy (DON).
