The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (EEOICPA) provides benefits to employees (or their survivors) of the Department of Energy (DOE) and its contractors/subcontractors, who became ill as a result of exposure to radiation and/or other toxic substances authorized by the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA or Act). It includes two separate benefit programs: Part B and Part E.
Part B of the EEOICPA provides eligible employees or survivors with lump-sum compensation up to $150,000, and pays medical expenses for accepted conditions. Part B also provides for payment of medical benefits and a smaller lump-sum amount of $50,000 to individuals who were determined to be eligible for compensation under Section 5 of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA).
Part E provides eligible employees or survivors with compensation payments up to a maximum amount of $250,000, plus medical expenses for accepted conditions. The amount of benefits paid up to the $250,000 is based on the level of impairment and/or years of qualifying wage loss related to the covered illness.
Part B and Part E of the EEOICPA have separate and distinct criteria for eligibility under the Act.
For detailed eligibility requirements for Part B and Part E, please visit the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC) page.
