Department of Labor - The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (EEOICPA)
EEOICPA provides compensation and health benefits to eligible Department of Energy nuclear weapons workers (including employees, former employees, contractors and subcontractors) and compensation to certain survivors if the worker is deceased.
EEOICPA is a federal Department of Labor compensation program and is separate from any state workers' compensation program. DOL Resource Centers are available to help you (or qualifying survivors) with the EEOICPA process. To locate the nearest resource center, please call the DOL toll free at 866-888-3322. More information can be found on the DOL EEOICP web page.
