The United States Department of Labor (DOL) administers the program known as the EEOICPA or Energy Employee Occupational Compensation Program Act. This program was designed specifically to help those who worked in the Nuclear Weapons programs and supporting industry to the Nuclear Weapons programs during the cold war and ongoing. EEOICPA provides many necessary benefits and compensation to United States Department of Energy workers. The United States Department of Justice works with and helped to establish RECA or Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. RECA made it possible for Uranium Miners, Millers and Haulers to receive a one-time payment and then possible to receive ongoing care or benefit through EEOICPA. A short list of requirements to help you determine if you qualify is listed on our Do I Qualify page. A quick review of that information may be helpful.

Once the government successfully processes an application for the RECA program, a claimant will receive $100,000 in cash.
Additionally, a claimant should also apply to the U.S. Department of Labor for the EEOICPA program when filing RECA paperwork. Once the RECA claim is complete, the worker will also receive $50,000 in cash under EEOICPA, as well as payment of medical claims associated with the qualifying illness.
