Filing a Claim Online


With the winter days now upon us it is important that we wear the proper footwear, which is specifically designed to avoid slips and falls. Management will certainly be quick to contest your claim due to improper footwear so let’s protect ourselves and avoid those unnecessary slips and falls. If you have an on- the-job injury (CA1); or an occupational disease (CA2); or need to submit any other OWCP forms the quickest way that OWCP can receive your claim and forms are through ECOMP. Through ECOMP you will have access to all submitted documents and you can monitor your claim. The NALC encourages injured letter carriers to file claims electronically via OWCP’s ECOMP web portal. Before you can file any forms in ECOMP you must first register and create an account. This means you do not need to rely on your postmaster, manager or supervisor to submit your claim on your behalf. This also allows OWCP to communicate directly with you in a near-real time basis. You can also electronically upload and submit documents to existing OWCP claim files, bypassing the Postal Service. You can register and file claims from your home computer, tablet or cellphone by going to the ECOMP website, https://www.ecomp.dol.gov/#/register. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
On November 14, 2021, we held our first Dinner Dance since the pandemic and it was great to once again gather together with friends and family. We had 300 guests, and everyone had a wonderful time. I look forward to next year’s Dinner Dance. If you couldn’t attend this year, I hope to see you next year. Be safe and God Bless You.
