The Injured Federal Workers Advocate Association (IFWAA) is a national corporation that has been organized to operate exclusively for charitable purposes, including, but not limited to improving the quality of life for federal employees who have been injured on the job. Our services are provided to federal and private sector employees covered by the Federal Employees Compensation Act, Black Lung Benefits Act, Long Shore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act, and employees that fall under the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.

 

The IFWAA provides the following services and more at no cost to the clients it represents:

 

  • 24 hour telephone and online support and answers for all work related injury compensation questions
  • Information on the laws, regulations, and resources that exist to the injured federal employee
  • Assistance in choosing approved qualified DOL/OWCP doctors’ offices, clinics, surgeons and hospitals

The IFWAA is committed to providing complete turnkey case management services to all of its employee clients. It’s been our experience that by providing these services at no cost to the injured employee:

 

  • reduces the anxiety and mental stress associated with being injured
  • helps the injured employee focus on their care and treatment while the IFWAA manages all of the administrative requirements associated with filing an DOL/OWCP claim
  • helps the injured employee claim get opened faster
  • helps the injured employee return back to work quicker and generally in better physical health
  • prevents the injured employee from having to use their private medical insurance for care, treatment and medicines.

Know your rights

Most federal worker claims that fail to get opened are in large part, due to the injured employee not knowing what their rights are as an injured employee. Each act that governs federal employees, federal contractors and subcontractors and atomic weapons employees has specific language that not only protects the employee at the time of injury but also states specifically how their medical cost will be paid for and how the injured employee will be compensated during the time of their injury.

 

Do you know what your rights are as it relates to being an injured federal employee or an injured contractor or subcontractor of the federal government? Knowing your rights is absolutely essential to reduce the time associated with getting your claim open, and knowing your rights increases the speed at which the injured employee receives the proper medical attention he/she needs.

 

The IFWAA uses the laws published in these acts to advocate on your behalf with the Department of labor, Office of Workers Compensation and your employer. The IFWAA is standing by to answer any questions that you may have regarding your federal injured worker claim. Call us toll free at 800-487-6360.
