EEOICPA stands for: Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program

The Department of Labor (DOL), Office of Worker Compensation Programs, oversees the EEOICPA Program. These claims are part of the Federal Workers Compensation program, providing compensation to individuals who have worked for the Department of Energy (DOE) or under a DOE contract at designated facilities.

Enacted by Congress in 2000 and effective in 2001, EEOICPA covers workers and work sites under the jurisdiction of the DOE and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC).

Who qualifies for EEOICPA benefits?

Employees who were involved in the production or testing of atomic weapons for the DOE at covered facilities are eligible for EEOICPA benefits. This includes their surviving spouse, children (including stepchildren), grandchildren, and parents who may also apply for benefits. 

If you or a loved one worked in the nuclear or uranium industries and became sick, you may be entitled to compensation of up to $400,000 plus free medical care in the comfort of your own home.

DOE contractors who performed environmental remediation at covered facilities also typically qualify for EEOICPA benefits.

Due to the complexity of the EEOICPA program, we recommend contacting us and we'll help you determine eligibility.

Does EEOICPA actually pay claims?

Yes, and since 2018, over 299,000 claims have been filed with almost $15 billion paid in total compensation and medical bills.

What medical services does EEOICPA cover?
