Description: The Office of Workers' Compensation Programs administers the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (5 U.S.C. 8101, et seq). The statute provides for continuation of pay or compensation for work related injury or disease resulting from Federal employment. The information requested on the CA-2a is obtained from claimants with previously accepted injuries who claim a recurrence of disability, and from their supervisors. The information requested relates to the specific circumstances leading up to the recurrence and employment and earnings information. If this information were not collected, an eligible beneficiary could be denied benefits, or benefits could be authorized at an incorrect rate, resulting in an underpayment or overpayment of compensation.Start Signature
