Workers' Compensation Programs
Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program
The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (EEOICP) delivers benefits to eligible employees and former employees of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), its contractors and subcontractors or to certain survivors of such individuals, as provided in the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA). This program also includes benefits for certain beneficiaries of Section Five of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act.
Congress passed a major amendment to the EEOICPA that became effective on October 28, 2004. The amendment replaces Part D of the Act, which provided for assistance from the DOE in obtaining state workers' compensation benefits. The new program, called Part E, is administered by the U.S. Department of Laborís (DOL) Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC).
