Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC)

Compensation Part E

On October 28, 2004, the President signed into law an amendment that replaces Part D of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) with a new program called Part E.  The amendment gives the Department of Labor (DOL) the responsibility for administering this new program.    

The amendment grants covered employees a federal payment based on the level of impairment and/or wage loss if they develop an occupational illness as a result of exposure to toxic substances at a Department of Energy (DOE) facility.  Medical benefits will also be available to qualifying employees for treatment and care of the accepted occupational illness.  Eligible survivors may receive federal compensation, if the employee’s death was caused or contributed to by the covered occupational illness.

If you feel you may be eligible for benefits under Part E of the EEOICPA and wish to file a claim, or find out more about the amendment, please refer to the resource center jurisdictional map to locate the resource center nearest you.
