The Government Shutdown and OWCP benefits

I have been receiving many concerned calls from FECA claimants regarding the status of their OWCP benefits in light of the government shutdown. OWCP is continuing to operate. While district offices are not answering telephones, wage loss payments, medical bills, and many case adjudication actions are all continuing to occur. The Branch of Hearings and Review is not conducting hearings during the shutdown.
