What is Workers' Compensation?

Workers’ Compensation (WC), also known as workers’ comp, is historically a discussion geared toward the employer, the employee, and the insurance carrier providing coverage to the employer for injured employees.

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement, medical, vocational and other benefits to employees injured or disabled while at work. The benefits are also for dependents of the injured workers in the event that a worker is killed as a result of a work-related injury.

U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP)

The OWCP manages 4 compensation programs providing the below benefits to the individuals that are injured on the job.
