About CWP

To connect our members with the information, resources and people necessary to help them with their individual situations. Membership

We are a non-profit membership organization of nuclear weapons-complex workers and uranium miners who sacrificed our health in service to our country.

Since 1942, it is estimated more than 700,000 Americans have worked to create and maintain our nation’s nuclear deterrent. In the process, many of us contracted illnesses from radiation or toxic exposures. We are committed to helping our fellow workers and their families understand the benefits available to them and how to gain access to needed health care and program services.

We share key information, connect individuals with quality health care, advocate for worker rights and support each other as we navigate the maze of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) and the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA).

We provide a forum to learn about benefits available, network with peers and professionals and keep up with the latest news and legislation regarding these complicated, important government programs.
