Energy Employees Occupational
Illness Compensation Program Act
This Federal program entitlement was initially created by Congress in 2000 and applies to about 360 D.O.E. facilities, most dating back to the Manhattan Engineers District, the mid WWII national security effort to create atomic weapons. About 50 DOE/AEC/SEC sites are our primary focus. These facilities include all the national labs, the test sites, production plants and weapons R&D where Congress has approved Special Exposure Cohorts, SEC's.
These SEC’s are specific U.S. Dept. of Energy (formerly AEC) facilities, with designated time frames and classes of employees, in which if you later had one of 22 specific cancers, and you worked there the required minimum number of days in the time frame specified, typically 250 work days, your chance of an award is greatly enhanced.
The nuclear work environment involved radiation and other toxic exposures. Many cancers are radiogenic, stimulated by radiation, resulting in diagnosed cancers among workers decades later. In these Cohorts, radiation is the legally presumptive cause of the cancer, thus requires no proof of causation.
We are the experts in our field and have worked with former civilian workers and their families from the Pacific Proving Grounds, Nevada Test Site, Rocky Flats, Portsmouth GDP, Oak Ridge, DOE/AEC National Labs including Brookhaven, Los Alamos, Sandia Labs, Savannah River, Hanford and many other Department of Energy facilities.
We know the in's and out's of the claims process with the Department of Labor - Office of Worker Compensation Programs; we understand how to work with medical professionals, medical records and medical terminology to find the key points of evidence to ensure successful claims. If a prior claim has been denied, allow us to review and advise on how to be successful upon resubmission of your claim.
