HISTORY OF FECA

If you’ve been approved by the DOL and you have a medical benefits card, you MAY be entitled to benefits.

FECA Benefits:

FECA compensation benefits are payable in several different ways including continuation of pay benefits, partial disability, full disability, and death benefits. Payment occurs when the employee suffers a permanent partial disability as a result of an on-the-job injury.

Meals & Tolar Impairment Specialists performs impairment assessments for qualified individuals under EEOICPA Part E, RECA, and FECA.

An impairment is a decrease in the functioning of a body part or organ as it affects a particular extremity, organ system, or the body as a whole, and that is the result of an illness or a traumatic injury that occurred while on the job. An impairment rating is performed once the claimant has reached Maximum Medical Improvement (i.e. the condition is stabilized and is unlikely to improve with additional medical treatment). The calculation of a payment involves the employee’s compensation rate, the number of weeks allowed on the Schedule for the injured body part, and the percentage of permanent impairment of the body part that is calculated in your impairment rating.
