Here are some tips for injured federal workers filling out their CA-2:

  • Be as detailed as possible. The more information you provide, the easier it will be for OWCP to process your claim. Be sure to include the date and time of your injury, the specific work activities you were performing at the time, and any other relevant details.
  • Attach any supporting documentation. This could include medical records, accident reports, or witness statements. The more documentation you can provide, the stronger your case will be.
  • Keep a copy of everything. Once you have filed your CA-2, be sure to keep a copy of everything for your records. This includes the form itself, any supporting documentation, and any correspondence with OWCP.
  • Be patient. The processing of a CA-2 can take some time. Be patient and don’t hesitate to contact OWCP if you have any questions or concerns.

Here are some additional tips:

  • Start by reading the instructions carefully. The CA-2 is a complex form, so it’s important to understand what information is required.
  • If you need help, ask for it. Your supervisor, human resources department, or a workers’ compensation attorney can all help you fill out the form.
  • Be honest and accurate. The information you provide on the CA-2 is important, so be sure to be honest and accurate.

I hope these tips help you fill out your CA-2. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
