EEOICP Program Statistics

Highlights

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).

*7 A recent update to our claims processing application has shifted the manner in which NIOSH reworks and returns are calculated. The Cases that are currently at NIOSH counts have decreased, and the Cases Returned by NIOSH have increased from previous reports.
