Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act Research Information

Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act information


Working on an Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) claim is a lot like prospecting for uranium, only less harmful to your health.  You never know when and where you will find a document with the information you need to prove to Department of Labor that your claims should be paid.  The documents below address various aspects of the US Nuclear Weapons program from various sources and may be useful to you.  CWP and EECAP don’t endorse using any of this research for a particular claim.  It is here for you to examine and evaluate on your own.
