FECA provides monetary compensation, death benefits, medical care and assistance, vocational rehabilitation, and retention rights to all Federal employees who sustain disabling injuries, including occupational disease or illness, as a result of their employment regardless of the type of appointment or length of employment.

DoD Pipeline Guidance
For a number of years, DoD has funded the "Pipeline" program which provided salary and overhire authority for the first 365 days of full-time employment, when long-term workers' compensation claimants are returned to work under certain circumstances. Pipeline made it easier to return these claimants to work and has been a huge success, saving all the DoD components hundreds of millions of dollars in future cost avoidance.
