Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC)

How the EEOICPA is Administered

Implementation of the EEOICPA involves the coordinated efforts of four federal agencies: the Department of Labor (DOL), Department of Energy, Department of Justice, and the Department of Health and Human Services. DOL has primary responsibility for administering the EEOICPA, including adjudication of claims for compensation and payment of benefits for conditions covered by Parts B and E.

DEEOIC's Joint Outreach Task Group (JOTG) Video Series! includes seven video segments, in which senior management from the Department of Labor (DOL), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Office of the Ombudsman for EEOICPA and for NIOSH, plus representatives from the Former Worker Medical Screening Program (FWP) explain their roles and responsibilities in carrying out duties related to the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA).

The video series reflects our shared commitment to the DOE workforce — the men and women who sacrificed so much for our country’s national security, who are now seeking compensation under the EEOICPA. The series also reflects the value of shared resources and teamwork among agencies and our mutual desire to reach out to a wider population to provide information about EEOICPA.
