Learn About OWCP Form CA-2

The OWCP Form CA-2 is a form used by federal employees to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits for an occupational disease. An occupational disease is a condition that is caused by exposure to hazards in the workplace over a period of time. To be eligible for federal workers’ compensation benefits for an occupational disease, the employee must be able to prove that the disease was caused by their employment.

The OWCP Form CA-2 requires the employee to provide the following information:

  • Their name, address, and contact information
  • Their job title and agency
  • The date the disease started
  • A detailed description of the disease and its symptoms
  • A description of the work conditions that they believe caused the disease
  • The names and contact information of any witnesses who can corroborate their story

The employee must also attach a narrative statement to the form that provides more detailed information about the disease, its symptoms, and the work conditions that they believe caused it.

Once the OWCP Form CA-2 is complete, the employee must submit it to their supervisor. The supervisor will then review the form and forward it to the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP). The OWCP will investigate the claim and make a decision about whether or not to award benefits.

If the OWCP awards benefits, the employee will be entitled to medical treatment, lost wages, and other benefits. The amount of benefits that the employee receives will depend on the severity of the disease and the employee’s earnings.
