US DOL Commitment To Nuclear Weapons Workers Reaches Milestone


Washington, DC ( - The Office of Workers' Compensation Programs has reached a significant milestone in the administration of
the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act. More than $8 billion has been paid to claimants nationwide.

Enacted in July 2001, the EEOICPA provides compensation and medical benefits to current and former employees who have fallen ill as a result of working in
the nuclear weapons industry. Toxic substances and exposure to radiation are common hazards in nuclear facilities, and the department's administration of
Parts B and E of the Act covers workers, contractors and subcontractors who have been diagnosed with radiation-induced illnesses and cancer.

OWCP operates resource centers across the country to provide workers with information about qualifying illnesses and established targeted goals for
strengthening the timeliness and effectiveness of the claims process, demonstrating its continued commitment to providing outstanding customer service to
workers and families.
