After very successful outreach events held in 2023, DEEOIC has developed a robust schedule for 2024 that includes various types of outreach events at cities throughout the country. As part of an initiative to enhance our stakeholders’ experience and provide ample time to plan attendance, a schedule of events has been created and is provided below.

Throughout the year, please monitor the Outreach and Events page for specific event location information. Typically, the flyer for each event is posted approximately one month before the event.

Description of event types:

JOTG Outreach Event
The Joint Outreach Task Group (JOTG) is made up of the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC) and partner agencies that play a role in the administration of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA). Participating agencies include Department of Energy (DOE) and their former worker medical screening programs, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Department of Justice (DOJ) Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) Program (dependent upon location), and the Offices of the Ombudsman for the EEOICPA and NIOSH. JOTG outreach events start with informational presentations given by DEEOIC and JOTG agencies. After the presentations, there is a question-and-answer session with all presenters, and there are tables situated throughout the venue with representatives from individual agencies to answer questions. Throughout the events, DEEOIC and DEEOIC Resource Center employees are available to meet with claimants individually to assist with case status updates, medical benefits issues, and claims filing assistance.

DEEOIC Outreach Event
DEEOIC outreach events are staffed by DEEOIC Resource Center employees, Claims Examiners (CE), Medical Benefits Examiners (MBE), and DEEOIC National Office staff. Resource Center staff are available to provide answers to general questions about the program and help file new claims. Claims Examiners and Medical Benefits Examiners are available to provide case status updates, answer case specific questions, and troubleshoot medical benefits issues.

Traveling Resource Center
Typically hosted near covered facilities, the purpose of these events is to provide Resource Center services and information to stakeholders who may not be located near one of the eleven Resource Center locations. Resource Center staff interact with attendees to answer general questions about the program. There is also a private area where Resource Center Caseworkers meet with attendees individually and intake new claims or answer questions about existing claims and medical benefits issues.

Authorized Representative (AR) Workshop
The AR Workshop is a two-day event for ARs and attorneys who represent claimants under the EEOICPA. During the workshop, DEEOIC staff, as well as representatives from the DOE, NIOSH, and the Office of the Ombudsman for the EEOICPA present information on their roles in the Program. The goal of AR workshops is to give a more in-depth understanding of the Program to ARs so that they can better assist claimants. Invitations to participate in the AR workshop are sent out to ARs within the region the event is being hosted in.
