OWCP Forms

Completing OWCP forms accurately and thoroughly is crucial for getting your claim processed efficiently. Here are some tips to help:

Before you begin:

  • Identify the correct form: Different types of injuries or illnesses or OWCP doctors require different forms. Make sure you have the right one by checking the OWCP website or contacting your agency’s workers’ compensation representative.
  • Gather all necessary documents: This may include medical weight loss records, witness statements, accident reports, and paystubs.
  • Understand the deadlines: File your claim as soon as possible, ideally within 30 days for injuries and within three years for occupational diseases.

General tips for completing the forms:

  • Read the instructions carefully: Each section has specific requirements, so pay close attention to the details.
  • Print neatly and use black ink: Ensure all information is clear and legible.
  • Be honest and complete: Provide all relevant information accurately and truthfully.
  • Don’t leave any blanks: If a section doesn’t apply, write “N/A”.
