Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC)
The Energy Document Portal (EDP) is an electronic document submission system that allows Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) claimants to file a new claim, file a consequential claim, complete benefit payment forms, electronically submit documents to their existing case file, and/or verify that documents were successfully submitted. Documents submitted within EDP are available to DEEOIC claims staff immediately after the document upload is complete, thus eliminating the mailing delays.
EEOICPA claimants can access the EDP by visiting the EDP website at: https://eclaimant.dol.gov. There you will find four options:
- File a new claim: Claimants can select a claim application form to complete (Form EE-1 or Form EE-2), digitally sign, and submit to DEEOIC. After completing a claim form, claimants have the option to complete an Employment History (Form EE-3). Note, claimants using EDP to submit an EE-1 or EE-2 form must use this option to provide a valid digital signature; we are unable to accept scanned copies of these forms in EDP.
- Upload document to existing case file: Employment records, medical reports, and additional forms needed by DEEOIC claims staff during the adjudication process may be electronically uploaded into the EDP. To upload a document, a claimant will need their DEEOIC Case ID number, the Employee’s Last Name, and the Last 4 numbers of the Employee’s Social Security Number (SSN). Please note: Forms EE-1, EE-2 and EN-20 are not accepted through this upload process and if submitted here, the claims staff will not be able to process until the original document is received by mail.
- Check status: Verify that your documents were successfully submitted. After claimants have successfully uploaded their documents into the EDP, they will receive a Document Control Number (DCN). Claimants can use this DCN to check the status of their upload within EDP. If claimants would like further information on the status of their uploaded documents, they should contact the DEEOIC and speak to the examiner handling their claim.
- Complete benefit payment forms: Complete, electronically sign, and submit Form EN-20 (Acceptance of Payment) that has been issued in a Final Decision. The ability to submit additional benefit payment forms (OWCP-915 and OWCP-957) is forthcoming.

If claimants do not wish to electronically file a claim or upload documents into the EDP, they may continue to mail documents to the Central Mail Room (CMR) or bring their documents to the nearest DEEOIC resource center where they will be uploaded into the claimant’s case file. Claimants should include the DEEOIC Case ID number on all documents mailed to the CMR. The address for the CMR is:
