The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) currently administers the Division of Federal Employees’ Compensation (DFEC), Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC), Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation (DLHWC) and Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation (DCMWC). The purpose of these agencies is to provide wage replacement benefits, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation and other benefits to qualified workers or their dependants who experience work-related injury or occupational disease.
The mission statement of the OWCP is:
The Office of Workers' Compensation Programs administers four major disability compensation programs which provide wage replacement benefits, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation and other benefits to certain workers or their dependents who experience work-related injury or occupational disease.
These programs, the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation program, the Federal Employees' Compensation Program, the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Program , and the Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation Program, serve the specific employee groups who are covered under the relevant statutes and regulations by mitigating the financial burden resulting from workplace injury.
In administering the programs, OWCP seeks to protect the interests of eligible workers, employers and the Federal Government by ensuring timely and accurate claims adjudication and provision of benefits, by responsibly administering the funds authorized for this purpose, and by restoring injured workers to gainful work when permitted by the effects of the injury.
