Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC)
The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (EEOICP) began on July 31, 2001 with the Department of Labor’s implementation of Part B; Part E implementation began on October 28, 2004. The mission of the program is to provide lump-sum compensation and health benefits to eligible Department of Energy nuclear weapons workers (including employees, former employees, contractors and subcontractors) and lump-sum compensation to certain survivors if the worker is deceased. When you apply for either Part B and/or Part E we will collect medical, employment, and other information from you and make a decision about whether or not you qualify for compensation and benefits.
On July 31, the U.S. Department of Labor marked the 13th anniversary of administering the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act. To date, the department has paid more than $10.6 billion in compensation and medical benefits to 95,037 claimants nationwide. "I am very proud of the hard work of our employees that has resulted in the payments to so many deserving people,” said Rachel P. Leiton, Director of the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation. “We believe that there are still many current and former nuclear weapons workers who are eligible for monetary compensation and medical benefits, but who have yet to file a claim. I encourage all individuals who may be entitled to benefits to contact us toll-free at 866-888-3322 and file a claim."
