Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC)

Outreach Event: Oak Ridge, Tennessee

Y-12

You are invited to an outreach event in Oak Ridge, TN, on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, to learn about the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) and the newly designated Special Exposure Cohort (SEC) class. The EEOICPA provides lump-sum compensation and medical benefits to current and former nuclear weapons workers whose illness is a result of working in the nuclear weapons industry. Current and former workers of the Y-12 Plant may qualify for a presumption of causation if they are included in a designated Special Exposure Cohort class of employees and diagnosed with one of 22 specified cancers. The change comes after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services amended its Special Exposure Cohort in March 2019.

Representatives from the Department of Labor (DOL), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Offices of the Ombudsman to both NIOSH and DOL will be presenting information as well on their roles in the Program. The EEOICPA is administered by the Department of Labor’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs, Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC).

Current/former employees of Y-12 or any facility involved in nuclear weapons production, who developed radiation-induced cancer are encouraged to attend! You may be eligible for compensation and medical benefits. Meet DEEOIC, DOE, NIOSH, and Ombudsman staff.

The EEOICPA is administered by the Department of Labor’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs, Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC).
