Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)



Question: What is the time limit for filing notice of injury and claim for federal workers' compensation?

Answer: A notice must be filed within three years of the date of injury. However, if a claim is not filed within three years, compensation may still be paid if written notice of injury was given within 30 days, or the employer had actual knowledge of the injury within 30 days after it occurred.
