“The Energy Employee’s Occupational Illness Program Act (EEOICPA) provides compensation and medical benefits to employees who become ill as a result of working in the Atomics Weapons Industry. The EEOICPA also offers benefits to their survivors.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is covered under the EEOICPA as a DOE Facility from 1950 to present and is designated as a Special Exposure Cohort site from January 1, 1950 to December 31, 1973.
Part B of the EEOICPA provides lump sum benefits up to $150,000 to qualified claimants who are determined to have worked at a covered facility and developed a radiogenic cancer, beryllium disease, or silicosis. Qualified survivors of these covered deceased workers may also be eligible for compensation.
Part E of the EEOICPA provides benefits to contractor and subcontractor employees who worked at certain government owned facilities where atomic weapons were produced and developed an occupational illness as a result of exposure to toxic substances.
