Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program
Up to $400,000 & Medical Benefits
Did You Know?
As it became apparent employees at nuclear weapons sites across the country were becoming sick in great numbers years after their work, congress decided to enact the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program ACT (EEOICPA) to help struggling workers.
IBEW members are eligible for up to $400,000 in tax-free payments and medical coverage. EEOICPA has already paid over $10 Billion in claims and many are still unaware of the program.
Who Is Eligible?
International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers members who worked at an official Department of Energy nuclear facility (employees, contractors & sub-contractors) and became sick due to a work-related illness may be eligible for compensation. Members of the worker’s family can also claim survivor benefits in some cases.
What are the benefits?
There are two parts to the Energy Employees Compensation Program (EEOICPA):
- Part B
- $150,000 tax-free, lump payment
- Living workers will receive full medical benefits for treatment of their work-related illness
- Survivor claims are also eligible for $150,000 and coverage of past medical bills
- Part E
**Claimants can be approved under both Part B & E with a maximum total payout of $400,000 not including medical bills
