Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA)

Provides workers' compensation coverage to three million federal and postal workers around the world for employment-related injuries and occupational diseases. Benefits include wage replacement, payment for medical care, and where necessary, medical and vocational rehabilitation assistance in returning to work.
Who is covered under Federal Employees' compensation act?
All civilian employees of the United States, except those paid from non-appropriated funds, are covered. Special legislation provides coverage to Peace Corps and VISTA volunteers; federal petit or grand jurors; volunteer members of the Civil Air Patrol; Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets; Job Corps, Neighborhood Youth Corps, and Youth Conservation Corps enrollees; and non-federal law enforcement officers under certain circumstances involving crimes against the United States.
Individuals injured on the job while employed by private companies or state and local government agencies should contact their state workers’ comp board.
