The Energy Employee’s Occupational Illness Program Act

“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. 

If you are unsure whether your condition is covered, please do not hesitate to contact the California Resource Center for assistance at 866-606-6302.  We will gladly assist you in completing the necessary forms and address any questions or concerns you may have regarding the program.  The Resource Center is located at 7027 Dublin Blvd, Suite 150 in Dublin, CA 94568. “

I'm guessing that most people that retired before '73 are dead or near death. So too late. Screwed again !

Also the bar is set so high that, unless you have one of their specified medical problems, you will just spin your wheels providing your medical history and the program’s paid (read owned by the government) medical review staff will not approve your claim.
