The Federal Employees' Compensation (FEC) program assists federal employees who have sustained work-related injuries or disease by providing appropriate monetary and medical benefits and help in returning to work. Monetary benefits include compensation for lost wages and permanent impairment. Medical benefits provided to injured Federal employees under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) include payment for any reasonable and necessary medical treatment for work-related injury or disease. Physical and vocational rehabilitation benefits may also be provided.
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be (a) a federal employee suffering from a work-related injury or disease, or (b) you must be an eligible survivor of a federal employee who died due to a work-related injury or disease.
