Understanding where the OWCP is

Monday, September 19th, 2011

The Office of Workers Compensation Programs (OWCP) is a branch under the Department of Labor (DOL). It specifically adjudicates and governs the laws under the Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA). They deal with all the rules and regulations under the federal workers compensation system.

The OWCP has offices spread throughout the United States and they try to work your file at a nearby office. District Offices are located in Boston (District 1), Philadelphia (3), New York City (2), Washington, D.C. (25), Jacksonville, FL (6), Cleveland (9), Chicago (10), Kansas City (11), Dallas (16), Denver (12), San Francisco (13) and Seattle (14). Your OWCP claims numbers will start with a two digit number signifying the district office the claim was originated in. However anyone who has dealt with OWCP knows that all the mail is sent to London, KY.

The London, KY office is simply a mail room. There are no claims examiners there at all. All submissions are scanned into an electronic database and forwarded to the appropriate district office. Remember that people in all of these districts need medical care and are looking for qualified federal OWCP doctors who can help them get the care they need and benefits they deserve. That is why FedDoctor exists.

Tell your friends and coworkers not to fight OWCP alone. Visit today and get started on recovery.
