Form CA-7 is used by federal workers seeking to claim compensation for traumatic injuries suffered while on the job, as well as those who may have sustained an occupational disease during the performance of work-related duties. This form may be filled online, or downloaded and filled offline.
Looking for assistance with handling federal compensation claims? As an injured worker that has never dealt with OWCP, it’s advisable to seek legal counsel so you are appropriately compensated as well as not denied rightful compensation the first time round. If you need help to have the process smoothed out or expedited, please call us for your 100% FREE consultation and benefit from our decades of experience helping hundreds of Americans just like you.
With form CA-7, you can apply for:
- A schedule award
- Wage loss
- Leave without pay
- Leave buy back
Here’s how to fill in form CA-7 as a fresh applicant who didn’t use ECOMP to file your initial claim:
- First, log on to ECOMP with your username and password
- Locate your case by clicking the blue button found at the top of the screen
- Click on “File a CA-7” and then continue on to the next step
- Enter your case file number as well as other pertinent personal information including your injury date in order to access your case.
- Enter your SSN number carefully, and ensure that it matches with the one on file. Click on “continue”.
- Once the system repopulates the form with your case information, indicate which form of compensation you’re seeking, as well as the compensation period. Don’t forget to include whether or not the dates are intermittent.
- If you’ve worked at a different job that is not your federal job, indicate this and then click “continue”.
