What is the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program? By Jack Thomas on March 14, 2013 Like


EEOICP or the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program was passed in the year 2000. It aims at providing compensation to people who have worked in nuclear weapons production and may have contracted hazardous illnesses or suffered some chronic health problem because of his overexposure to such an environment. The law was passed while President Bill Clinton was in office. EEOICP is taken care of and handled by the Department of Labor and the program has five sections – namely A, B, C, D and E.

The second part takes into consideration individuals or those who survive them. It is directed towards employees who have worked in enclosed setups and have acquired silicosis, beryllium disease or some cancer related health problem because of excessive exposure to powerful radiation. The fifth part is directed towards employees or those who survive them as well. These people will have to be suffering from any illness that was caused by over exposure to toxic material. While under Part B, the compensation amount is a hefty $150,000, the compensation amount under Part E is $50,000. The compensation now under Part E was earlier included under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA).

Apart from this financial compensation, EEOICP also provides the individual or his family with additional medical perks from the date that the candidate registers for the facilities. These perks include all sorts of advantages including home health care facilities. Also under Part E, the compensation amount stated at $50,000 is a variable amount and can go up to $250,000 if factors like wage loss, survivorship and impairment are proven. The facilities of the act have been listed jointly by Department of Energy and Department of Labor. The labor department sends across the registration of the candidate under Part B to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health so that the cancers that may have stemmed from overexposure to radiation under occupational circumstances can be analyzed and reconstructed. The agency then asks the energy department for

records of the employee’s exposure to such situations and then interviews the candidate or his family in order to complete the reconstruction. The agency also gathers all necessary information about the worker’s station to be accurate about their report. After the report is prepared, the statement is sent back to the labor department and compensation amounts are decided thereafter. So if you have served your country in disastrous situations by putting your life at stake, you deserve the perks that EEOICP offer you. In your best health, you chose to be on the site where nuclear weapons are prepared and tested so you deserve the benefits to recuperate if the overexposure has impacted your body in sufferable ways. Hospital expenses are clearly very steep and treatments for such chronic problems require the most of your funds. Without the amenities offered to you by the state departments, most patients would suffer and not know where to find help. Lucky for you, America gives to you what you need if you have contracted a fatal illness from occupational locations. In case the concerned person has passed away, his family could use the privileges that he earned. Since the act was implemented, it claims to have helped millions of American employees who have worked with regard to nuclear weapons.
