Anyone who worked at a Department of Energy nuclear facility and contracted certain illnesses because they were exposed to radiation or hazardous chemicals could be eligible to receive benefits from this program. Surviving family members may also be eligible for lump-sum compensation. There are two parts to the program that outline specific details of the act: EEOICPA Part B and EEOICPA Part E of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA).
