Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program
Over 95,000 Workers, $10.6 Billion in Compensation Awarded
Where did you work?
To help workers becoming sick from their employment at nuclear weapons production plants across the United States, congress created the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA).
Machinist members may be eligible for up to $400,000 in tax-free payments and medical coverage. A lot of workers still haven’t heard for the EEOICPA program despite over $10 Billion in claims being paid as of 2014.
Criteria for Eligibility
International Association of Machinists members who were employed at a recognized nuclear production Department of Energy facility (employees, contractors & sub-contractors) and became sick due to a work-related illness may be eligible for compensation. Survivors of deceased workers may also be eligible for compensation.
Medical Benefits and Compensation
The Energy Employees Compensation Program (EEOICPA) has two separate benefits programs:
- Part B
- $150,000 lump sum, tax-free payment
- Workers can also receive a variety of medical benefits to help cover costs associated with their illness
- For deceased workers, surviving family members are eligible for $150,000 and old medical bill compensation
- Part E
**You can file a claim under both Part B & E with a maximum total payout of $400,000. There is no limit on reimbursement for medical expenses
