Injury Compensation: Overview

Workplace injuries can happen anywhere, anytime—placing an immediate administrative burden on supervisors and impacting short-term and possibly long-term productivity.

The Injury Compensation and Unemployment Compensation Branch (ICUC) is the centralized source for civilian injury compensation support within the Department of Defense (DOD).

Our expert advisors help supervisors, Injury Compensation Program Administrators, and Commanders reduce the impact of workplace injuries by demystifying the compensation process. They will work with your installation to ensure the timely filing of new injury claim forms and claims for wage loss compensation. Our Liaisons coordinate in person with the Department of Labor Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) to bring employees back to work as quickly and safely as possible.

With 12 offices nationwide and specialists at HQ to assist with civilian injuries that occur overseas and in the war zones, ICUC can help you meet the challenges of ensuring your employees are professionally cared for when a workplace injury occurs.

THE EMPLOYEES' COMPENSATION OPERATIONS & MANAGEMENT PORTAL (ECOMP) ECOMP is the technical solution that allows Defense Activities to complete CA-1 (Federal Employee's Notice of Traumatic Injury and Claim for Continuation of Pay/Compensation) and CA-2 (Federal Employee's Notice of Occupational Disease) forms on-line and submit them via the Internet to the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs.
