Indiana and Federal Workers’ Compensation

Federal Employees

Report your injury as soon as possible and request workers’ compensation benefits.

Your employer is not going to inform you of your rights.  Ask your Union, or ask a co-worker.  Request a CA-16 form to get your medical bills paid.  Go to the medical provider of your choice.  Fill out and give to your supervisor a CA-1 form for a traumatic injury, and a CA-2 form for an occupational exposure/repetitive motion injury.  If you suffer a traumatic injury and are unable to work, your employer is supposed to continue your pay (COP) for 45 calendar days before workers’ compensation pay starts.

There is a three (3) year statute of limitations period in which you must file your claim or be untimely.
