Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program
The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program
Act (EEOICPA) was enacted to provide compensation and medical
benefits to employees who worked at certain Department of
Energy (DOE) facilities, including contractors and subcontractors
at those locations, and certain of its vendors.
Adjudication of issues pertaining to all claims for benefits
under the EEOICPA is the responsibility of the Department
of Labor (DOL). The DOL is supported in its role by the DOE,
the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the
Department of Justice (DOJ).
If you would like more information about the benefits available
under the EEOICPA, please visit DOL's
The DOL has also established Resource Centers around the
country to provide information about the EEOICPA and to assist
the public with claim filing. To locate the Resource Center
nearest you, please call toll free (866) 888-3322 or visit
the DOL's webpage on its Resource
For those individuals who are seeking information about the
state workers compensation assistance program that was administered
by the DOE under Part D of EEOICPA, that program was abolished
in an amendment enacted on October 28, 2004. The claims filed
under the Part D program have been transferred to DOL for
consideration to the benefits that are now available under
Part E. If you are seeking information about your claim, please
contact the DOL.
The DOE Role
The DOE provides worker and facility records and data to
the DOL to help in their decision-making and in support of
the administration of the EEOICPA. In addition, DOE maintains
a list of facilities covered under the EEOICPA. This list
is published in the Federal
Register and is periodically updated.
In addition to periodic publication of the list in the Federal
Register, the DOE also maintains the searchable covered
facility database. This database contains additional information
pertaining to each of the facilities noted in the Federal
Register, including years of activity and a general overview
of what the facility did.
The Department welcomes comments or additional information
regarding the facilities covered under EEOICPA. When new information
supports new listings or expanded time periods, updates are
made accordingly. Contact Information:
