Dear Claimant:

 

We are in receipt of the claim you filed under the Energy Employee Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA).  The information you provided on your claim form indicates that (uranium worker’s name) was a uranium worker.

 

The Denver District Office contacted the Department of Justice on (Date Contacted) to request verification that you have been approved for an award under Section 5 of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA).  On (Date Replied), the Department of Justice confirmed that they have not received a claim from you under the RECA.

 

Uranium workers are not covered under Part B of the EEOICPA unless they have received a notice of award from the Department of Justice under Section 5 of RECA.  The first step in pursuing a claim under Part B of the EEOICPA with the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (DEEOICP) is to file a claim with the Department of Justice under Section 5 of RECA.

 

This letter serves as official notification that you have 60 days from the date of this correspondence to file a claim with the Department of Justice under Section 5 of RECA.  It is your responsibility to provide this office with proof that you have filed with the Department of Justice under Section 5 of RECA. 

 

If you do not file a claim with the Department of Justice or provide proof of filing to the DEEOICP within the allotted 60 days, this office will render a decision on your Part B EEOICPA claim.  Your Part E claim is not dependent on a Section 5 RECA award and is presently under development.
