EEOICP Program Statistics


In May 2009 we introduced new Part B statistics for cases sent to NIOSH and cases approved based on Special Exposure Cohort (SEC) status.

Note below that claim numbers represent each employee or survivor who filed for benefits. Case numbers represent employees (living or deceased) whose employment and illness are the basis for the claim.

Note also that we differentiate applications as either covered or non-covered. Non-covered applications are those for which the medical condition claimed is not one of the covered occupational illnesses (applies only to Part B applications); or the employee's covered employment has not been established (Parts B and E); or a survivor did not meet eligibility requirements (Part E).
