Federal workers who suffer an on-the-job injury that prevents them from working are usually entitled to compensation benefits. The specific types and amounts of compensation depend on the line of work the employee did, how the injury occurred, and how severe the injury was. In limited cases, federal benefits are also available for nonfederal employees.
In every case, workers who qualify for benefits must apply for them, and prove their eligibility. Mistakes in the often-confusing application process can led to a claim being denied, causing you and your family needless delays and frustration. The process to appeal a denial of benefits is also complex and confusing.

Understanding the federal employee benefits you are eligible to receive can be tricky, especially when multiple benefit types are available and they offset each other. Properly documenting your claim and submitting it on time can also be difficult for those who have never applied for federal benefits before.
