OWCP Changes to ECOMP

Effective 09/28/2020, you can electronically receive and respond to letters from OWCP directly through your ECOMP Dashboard

If OWCP sends you a letter requiring a response, it will now appear in your ECOMP dashboard under the “Action Required” tab. You can respond online and attach documents to your response. 

A video tutorial is also available in ECOMP’s Help Menu under User Guides / Injured Worker / Introduction.

If OWCP sends you an informational-only letter, it will only appear in your Case View, which you cannot access from your dashboard. To access your Case View, you must click on the case number from your dashboard.

 

The second change also takes effect today, September 28, 2020, when OWCP will start using 202-513-6860 as the sole telephone number where you can reach them from 9:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. ET, Monday – Friday (except for federal holidays). 


This new voice line will replace the current 12 FECA district office telephone numbers and provide you direct access to your assigned Claims Examiner. 


Enter your FECA case number when prompted by the system and you will be routed directly to your assigned Claims Examiner. 


As a result of this change, effective today, September 28, 2020,  your case may be transferred to a different Claims Examiner.

OWCP and Coronavirus Relief Checks


For those of you wondering if you will receive a Coronavirus relief check, these are the current facts:

If you rely on non-taxable government income, i.e., SSI and OWCP compensation, you may still qualify for a relief check.

Relief checks are going to be based on adjusted income on tax returns. If there is no tax return, they will use the 1099 form from Social Security.

Amounts are as follows:

$1,200.00 if single at $75,000.00
$2,400.00 if married filing jointly at $150,000
$500.00 per child 16 years or younger

The amount is reduced $5.00 per $100.00 for incomes above $75,000.00 if single and $150,000 married, filing jointly.

No relief check for those with incomes over $99,000.00 with one child if single or $198,000 married, filing jointly.

Those with direct deposit who qualify will have their checks put directly into their bank accounts. Those without direct deposit will be mailed a check.

They expect checks that are mailed to take much longer, current estimates are four months.

Details are still are coming out, such as when payments will be released (current goal is 04/06), so there may be more information at a later date or last minute changes.
