File OWCP Claims with ECOMP!

The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs at the Department of Labor has created an online portal to facilitate workers’ claims. It is called the Employees’ Compensation Operations and Management Portal (ECOMP). CA-1 claims for COVID-19 are also accessible through the ECOMP program. While it is not mandatory to file using the ECOMP program, we would like to encourage all our members to use this system when filing a claim for injury.

For more information on ECOMP, visit, apwu.org/ecomp.
