Non- Appropriated Fund Instrumentalities Act (NAFIA)

What is the NAFIA?

The Non-Appropriated Funds Instrumentalities Act (NAFIA) is an extension of the Longshore Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). It seeks to extend the coverage of the LHWCA to employees who are working for the the non-appropriated fund instrumentalities industries. These are usually the support members of the country’s armed forces. They are the ones trying to help out the military by providing them with treatment, care, and rehabilitation. They may be administrative personnel, storekeepers, daycare providers, warehouse men, operators, housekeepers, and more. Contact us at 504-838-8883
and we will assess your situation.

NAFIA benefits include compensation for lost wages in case of disability, death benefits, and medical care and treatment.
