Department of Labor – The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (EEOICPA)
EEOICPA provides lump-sum compensation and health benefits to eligible Department of Energy nuclear weapons workers (including employees, former employees, contractors and subcontractors) and lump-sum compensation to certain survivors if the worker is deceased. If you apply for either Part B and/or Part E DOL will collect medical, employment, and other information from you and make a decision about whether or not you qualify for compensation and benefits.
EEOICPA is a Federal compensation program and is separate from any state workers' compensation program. DOL Resource Centers are available to help you (or qualifying survivors) with the EEOICPA process. To locate the nearest resource center, please call the DOL toll free at 866-888-3322. More information can be found on the DOL EEOICP web page.
