Dear [Representative]:

According to our records, you have been designated as the authorized representative in the above case. As the authorized representative of the above claimant, you are expected to put your client’s interests before your own private, non-representational direct financial interests in all of your dealings with the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC). DEEOIC will consider you to have a prohibited “conflict of interest” if you could directly benefit financially from your client’s Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) claim due to something other than your statutorily limited fee for representing your client in connection with his or her EEOICPA claim.

DEEOIC has received information that suggests a conflict of interest exists in this case. {Describe the evidence that suggests a conflict of interest. Be sure to include names, dates of letters, and all pertinent information to describe the evidence.}

In light of this evidence, DEEOIC requests that you prepare a signed statement explaining your response to the above detailed evidence of a conflict of interest. Please submit your statement within 30 days from the date of this letter. Upon review of your statement, in conjunction with the evidence of record, DEEOIC will determine whether a conflict of interest exists in the case. If it is determined that a conflict of interest does exist, DEEOIC will no longer recognize you as the claimant’s authorized representative unless the conflict of interest is eliminated. If you acknowledge that a conflict of interest does exist, you may resolve the conflict by either submitting a signed resignation as the claimant’s authorized representative, or submitting evidence of the relinquishment of the charges, position, job, or duty creating the conflict.

Please contact the district office at XXX-XX-XXXX if you have any questions or concerns regarding this letter.
