The Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP) administers the Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA) and has sole adjudication authority for Federal workers' compensation claims.
The Injury Compensation Program Administrator's (ICPA) office, in conjunction with the Civilian Personnel Management Service, Injury & Unemployment Compensation Division, is responsible for monitoring your entitlement to the benefits outlined within the FECA and administered by the OWCP.
Your ICPA office is the WHS Labor and Management Employee Relations division. To reach the division office, call 571-372-3964.
While workers' compensation records are protected from release under the Privacy Act, your employer is considered a party to the claim. The Worker's Compensation office may receive information in your file under the "routine use" provision of the regulations under which the Privacy Act is administered. Such information may include medical reports. The ICPA office is expected, however, to handle this information with care and to restrict access to those with a specific need to have it.
